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.
Jahan died on June 29, 2015 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after he was taken there by ambulance.
An autopsy revealed he had died as a result of blunt force trauma.
They are being represented by attorney-at-law Samuel Legay while Sergeant Janice Ifill is representing the Crown.
