Ricardo McFee, the 29-year-old resident of Villa who has been charged with the murder of a 10-month-old baby earlier this month is expected to be sentenced on two counts of ammunition possession on Nov. 19.

Last Thursday, when he appeared before the Serious Offences Court in Kingstown, McFee pleaded guilty to possessing 30 rounds of .38 ammunition without a licence on May 4, this year, and possessing 10 rounds of .38 ammunition without a licence on the said date.

McFee was expected to be sentenced last Friday, one day after he pleaded guilty, but his lawyer Ronald Marks was said to have been engaged in another matter before the High Court.

The sentencing was then postponed to yesterday, Monday, but again Marks was not present and the court was told that he was engaged at the High Court.

As a result, Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias adjourned the sentencing to Nov. 19.

McFee is also charged with possessing a .38 Glock pistol without a licence on May 4, 2016. He pleaded not guilty to the charge last Thursday.

McFee was arrested in Kingstown on May 4, and charged with the firearm and ammunition.

McFee is one of two persons charged with the murder of a 10-month old baby of Fair Hall, Mozarie Lee, on Oct. 7 and the shooting of the baby’s parents, who survived.

The baby died shortly after having sustained gunshot wounds to his stomach.

Both accused are also charged with attempted murder on the baby’s parents Shelly-Ann Durham, 27, a babysitter of Fair Hall and Mozart Lee, 39, an audio technician of Fair Hall.

The other person charged with the murder and attempted murder is 45- year-old Martin “Jah Son” James of Villa.

Both accused are in prison on remand for the alleged murder and attempted murder.
