Murder accused, Vandyke King. (iWN file photo)

The lawyer for the Park Hill man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death while she was holding their one-year-old daughter in her arms in March says that he is considering a paper committal for the preliminary inquiry.

Counsel Ronald Marks, however, told the Serious Offences Court on Monday that because of the COVID-19 restrictions, he has not had a chance to discuss this thoroughly with his client, Vandyke King.

Crown Counsel Assistant Superintendent of Police John Ballah indicated to the court that another crown counsel is reviewing the file and it is not clear what instruction that counsel might have for police after the review.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne, therefore, adjourned the hearing to next Monday, June 22.

King, a 34-year-old former police officer, is alleged to have murdered his girlfriend, Mickiesha Gumbs, 26, at Park Hill, by stabbing her on March 7, in Park Hill.
