A Dickson Villager farmer has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance on Monday in connection with his alleged murder of a national athlete.

Veron Bushay appeared at the Kingstown Magistrate Court, on Tuesday, where Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett read him a charge that on Sept. 11, at Dickson Village, he murdered fellow villager, Kaif Fraser.

Fraser, an 18-year-old national volleyballer, died after Bushay allegedly stabbed him with a knife, police said.
