Another man charged for Worrell’s murder

COURT TODAY BLOCKA ninth man has been charged with the October 2 murder of Jamal Worrell.

This morning, Jonathan Ricardo Joshua Layne, 20, of Grazettes New Road, St Michael, appeared before Magistrate Ian Weekes in the District ‘D’ Magistrates Court.

Layne, who is being represented by attorney-at-law Andrew Willoughby, was remanded to HMP Dodds and will reappear in court with his co-accused on January 4.

His brother Johann Layne and with seven others have already been charged.

The accused are Dario Theo Mitchell, 21, Chad Akeem Chadderton, a 21-year-old student and Reo Seth Graham, 34, all of Tudor Bridge, Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael.

The other murder accused are Rory Japeth Graham, Reo’s twin, of no fixed place of abode, Alex Akeem Jacobs, 20, of 1st Avenue Grazettes and James Matthew Miller, 39, a steel-bender and Rico Jabarry McClean, 23, both of Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael.

The men went before Magistrate Ian Weekes at the Belleplaine Magistrates’ Court, which sits at District ‘D’ Magistrates’ Court in St Thomas.

They were not required to plead to any of the four October 2 charges for which they are jointly accused; along with murder, they have also been charged with using an unlicensed firearm and recklessly engaging in conduct which placed the lives of Worrell’s father Errol McKie and his brother Michael Worrell, in danger of death or serious bodily harm.

Accused Mitchell and Reo Graham face further charges of possession of cannabis, intent to supply and trafficking the drug on October 6. They were also not required to plead to those offences.

Worrell was shot while at The Bleak, near Indian Ground, St Peter, where he worked.
