Marshall granted bail

The second person charged with the death of six-year-old Jahan King has been granted bail.

Dwayne Marshall was released from HMP Dodds today where he has been on remand for almost six months.

He was granted $20 000 bail with one surety when he appeared in the No.2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court  before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

Marshall’s release comes almost a month after his co-accused, Jahan’s mother, Lasonta Gill was released from prison.

She secured bail in the sum of $20, 000 on September 20.

The two who are scheduled to re-appear in court on December 15 are charged with unlawfully killing the six-year-old last year.
