Prosecutor Constable Corlene Samuel objected to bail for Spencer.

She told the court that two of the virtual complainants are still warded at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, with Jackson who is in the Intensive Care Unit listed as being in a critical condition.

Samuel asked that Spencer be remanded in custody for two weeks and a bail review be conducted then.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne did not consider bail at that point and ordered that Spencer be remanded in custody and the court be given a comprehensive medical report on the complainants.

The chief magistrate set the bail review for next Monday, Dec. 9.

In June 2011, Spencer was charged with the murder of Clevedon “Junior” Chewitt,  26, of Belair.

Chewitt died on June 25, 2011 after receiving a stab wound to the left side of his neck at Heritage Square.

In October 2012, Chewitt, pleaded not guilty to murder and guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Chewitt had bumped into Spencer who then retrieved a knife from his pants and stabbed him in the left side of his neck.

In a police statement, Spencer said: “He come and war whine up pon (dance with) the woman dem who ah been liming with. The daughter fo’ the woman ain’t war give this guy ah whine and he keep humbugging her.”

Spencer was sentenced on Nov. 30, 2012 to eight years in prison for manslaughter.

  1. Well well its,a good thing that ordinary citizens don’t take the law in their hands or otherwise he would not have been able to conduct further mayhem on citizens. May God help us with so many unlicensed guns in the hands of these scoundrels.

  2. Capital punishment should come into play. There is a loud cry the implementation of capital punishment.

  3. Lock him up n throw away the key…he is a menace to society one who will repeat his vengeance once approach….animal like these need to face the full penalty for their action…he already gt away once…lets start at life in prisonment yr honour…..25 to life aint bad either

  4. What is wrong with SVG? What is wrong with our society? The world in general has gotten worse, but in SVG and the Caribbean in general it we can see why: The Caribbean and especially SVG has no leadership. Everything is dysfunctional, the economy, society, the work ethic, etc…
