Police have charged with murder the man they returned to this country from Grenada on Saturday.

Colin “Cocoa Browne” David, 33, of Rose Hall, appeared in court on Monday, where the charges were read to him.

He is the second person charged with the May 5 murder of Devon Jahjust Steele, who was gunned down in Rose Place, Kingstown.

Jomorni Tash, 21, of Rockies, was earlier this month charged with Steele’s murder and remanded in custody.

Both men are scheduled to reappear in court on October 21 for a preliminary inquiry.

Meanwhile, Israel Bruce, David’s lawyer, told I-Witness News on Monday that contrary to reports, his client has not been questioned in relation to the June 13 robbery of EC$100,000 (EC$1=US$0.37) from a postal worker and the shooting of a police officer who went to help her.

Well-placed sources have told I-Witness News that the arrest of David could help to crack the robbery case.

The Coast Guard on Saturday returned David to this country from Grenada.

He became the second suspect to arrive in this country from that neighbouring nation in less than a week.

Last week Monday, Dwaine Sandy, who police had earlier said was wanted in connection with the June 13 robbery, arrived in this country, along with his lawyer, Grant Connell, on a flight from Grenada.

Police kept Sandy in custody for 48 hours on two separate occasions last week but released him each time without bringing any charges against him.

    Mr Chance,it would appear that you need to get better sources, cause they are leading you to write unsubstantiated articles, that could get you into legal problems. I am yet to see any evidence to support the “implications” for Mr Sandy with the arrest of this murder suspect that I-witness reported in a previous article.

    Initially, I gave the police the benefit of the doubt, assuming that they had at least some evidence to support their case against Mr Sandy, well it would appear that was not the case.

    Mr Sandy, I HOPE YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH AND IF YOU ARE, YOU SHOULD BE DOING EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE.THERE IS ONE IRON-CLAD ALIBI THAT COULD PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE ONCE AND FOR ALL. IS THERE SOMEONE THAT CAN VERIFY YOUR WHEREABOUTS AT THE TIME OF THE ROBBERY? IF YOU ANSWER THIS QUESTION IN THE AFFIRMATIVE, THEN YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM…BUT GIVEN THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE A LAWYER AND WAS ARRESTED TWICE, I SUSPECT THIS PARTICULAR QUESTION IS STILL PROBLEMATIC FOR ALL CONCERNED.
