In one of the cases, a 50 year old man from Christ Church appeared before District “A” Magistrate, Douglas Frederick, today, accused of the motor manslaughter of two year old Joshua Boyce of 4th Avenue, Skeete’s Road, the Ivy in St. Michael.

John Russell Sr, of Dolphin Park, St. Patricks, is charged in connection with the death of the child, who was allegedly struck by a car last Friday afternoon during a dispute between two members of a household in the Ivy.

The infant was pronounced dead after arrival at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Russell was remanded to Dodds Prison in St. Philip until June 3.

In the other case, 58 year old Allan Belle is facing a charge of murder in relation to the death of his wife, Brenda Belle, 64, of St. Barnabas, St. Michael.

    Allen Belle finally did it this time. I remember him attacking my brother on a cricket field decades ago — they were only young boys back then. But, I must say it’s interesting what Lynda and Snuffy has said, because reading your words made you sound just like the Allan Belle you described. You, Lynda, think he’s a disgrace and Allan only wanted to be appreciated. You, Snuffy, want him tortured, similar to what he did to his wife, but all Allan wanted was to be loved. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and leave all judgment to The One who put us all here.
