Accused men face a number of serious charges

COURT TODAY BLOCKSeven young men – including two who were charged with murder – were remanded to jail until March 20 after appearing in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today under heavy police escort.

The alleged killers are Romario Akeem Phillips, 22, of 10th Avenue New Orleans, St Michael and Nicholas Akeem Teo Shorey, 23, of 3rd Ave, Parris Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael who are accused of the December 8, 2014 death of Albert Boyce. They were also jointly charged with two counts of robbing Don Harding and Tonya Bourne of their cell phones, jewellery and other items last December 7.

The court appearance by the group, generated much intrigue outside the District “A” court where a large crowd was gathered to get a glimpse of the accused.

Their arrest came on the heels of a significant breakthrough reported by police in their investigation into a shooting incident, which occurred last December 7 at the Ivy, St Michael.

As a result of that investigation, four of the men, who live in the parish where the crime occurred, were jointly charged with conspiracy to endanger the life of Ryan Callender. They are Phillips; Marvin Marcus Victor, 28, of 4th Ave, Pickwick Gap; Akem Jabarry Leon, 22, of 3rd Ave, Mannings Land; and Damien Francisco Padmore, 34, of #2 Skeetes Road, Ivy.

Phillips and Victor were also charged with separate counts of possession of unlicensed firearms. Phillips also faces charges of unlawful use of a firearm, as well as causing criminal damage of a motor vehicle on December 7.

In the meantime, Shorey and Rehquino Samkeh Barker, 23, of Pickwick Gap, St Michael face separate counts of unlawful possession of firearms.

Shorey is also jointly charged with Kareem Dentonia Bailey, of School Road, Bakers, St Peter, with unlawfully wounding Akiyo Belgrave on January 13, with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause him serious bodily harm.

    the RBPF must be commended for the work they are doing in apprehending those who are committing these crimes in a relatively short time – let’s hope they have the right people

    And as one person has said, we hear nothing about the police obtaining the guns associated with these crimes

    Tis sad to see this, could only imagine what these were like at baby, toddler, adolescence etc. My point is these aint born to be thugs, not wanting to find any excuses but we need to look into the methods of parenting in barbados

    Some of us raise our children up right and they are grown they decide to take the wrong path.They have to deal with what they chose to do.they do the crime,then do the time.

    This is a very serious situation we face with regards to our young people who are suppose to be the future leaders in Barbados…We as a society keep adopting the (failed) north american approach to West Indian set of issues…its evident that we are going about these issues the wrong way here…
    Solving crime is important yes, but what I think is critical is to stop these kinds of crimes all together..we can only do this from the root of our society and as a collective.

    As for the violent youth in Barbados and for all youth for that matter, they are only copy cats. SOLUTION: ban all violent films presented to Barbados Film Festival. Period
