A 22-year-old Glen resident has been charged with the murder of a fellow villager, who was stabbed in Kingstown on July 3.
Omari Bramble appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne at the Serious Offences Court, on Wednesday, charged that on July 3, at Richmond Hill, with malice aforethought, he caused the death of Darius Williams by an unlawful act.
Bramble was not required to plead to the indictable charge.
As Bramble stood in the dock, he came to attention, saluted and said, “Salute! Justice and peace!”
“Don’t try that!” Browne told the accused.
The magistrate remanded Bramble to prison until Oct. 3 for a preliminary inquiry in which the prosecution says it intends to call 16 witnesses.
Police have said that Williams, 23, was working as a conductor on an omnibus that stopped at the Peace Memorial Hall Bus Stop at Richmond Hill, around 5:50 p.m. on July 3 when he was attacked by an assailant and stabbed with a knife.
