The preliminary inquiry will take the form of  paper committal proceeding, in which the magistrate, prosecutor, and defence counsel would read through the evidence and then the magistrate would decide whether there is enough evidence to send Poyer to trial at the High Court. 

Counsel Ronald “Ronny” Marks is representing Poyer. 

Police said, on Tuesday, that reports are that Lee and Poyer, a 40-year-old auto body workman, were residing in the same dwelling house at Murray’s Village.

One reply on “Man charged with murder over cousin’s death”

  1. It is high time that black brothers need to stop killing each other! Repent black people for the remission of your sins. Stop the killing of each other. It’s no wonder why the white men would not stop killing us. Because what’s the sense when black brothers kI’ll each other? There are ways to walk away from a fight or quarrel…just shut up and take a walk , or say ” I am sorry “. I am so fed up with Vincentians and cutlasses! It’s no wonder hard times have to hang around us. These are times to repent and draw near to God. Give him a very hard jail time. It’s time the killers get a harder jail time. Like 50 years with no parole. Black brothers stop killing each other..it is enough man!
