St. Vincent and the Grenadines recorded its third homicide this week with the shooting death of a Richland Park man in his community Thursday night.
Unknown assailant(s) shot Roneil Bobb dead in the street in the Marriaqua community.
The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear at this time.
In March, Bobb made iWN headlines when lawyer Grant Connell referred to him in court as a “two-legged rodent”
On March 18, at Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, Bobb pleaded guilty, to a charge that on March 13, at Congo Valley, he failed to produce a buyer’s certificate for 150 oranges.
The charge falls under the Agricultural Produce and Livestock (Prevention of Theft) Act, commonly referred to as the praedial larceny law.
Connell had caught Bobb red-handed on the farm.
The court ordered Bobb to pay a fine of EC$600 forthwith or six months in prison and a further EC$600 within a month or a further six months in prison.
However, he was jailed for one month for giving police a false name in connection with the stolen oranges.
Bobb was shot dead on a day that an autopsy concluded that farmer Garfield “Yabba” Mofford, 50, whose decomposing body was found outside his shack in Dorsetshire Hill, on Thursday, died of chop wounds.
Mofford’s decomposing body was found wrapped in a sheet outside the dilapidated structure in which he lived on a field planted with sweet potato.
A resident of the community said he last saw Mofford last Friday or Saturday.
Also, on Monday, Tevin Williams, 22, of Rockies, died on the spot after a masked assailant shot him in the neck around 8 p.m., while he was hanging out with friends under the Melville Street gallery of Ace Hardware.Thursdays killing bring to 16 the number of homicides in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.
