Bail denied

Constable Everton Gittens was today twice denied bail on a charge that he murdered Selwyn Knight – first in the Magistrates’ Court when he appeared to answer the charge, then when he appealed to the High Court.

Constable Everton Gittens

He was remanded until May 18.

Gittens fatally shot 57-year-old Knight and wounded his son Junior on March 15, when the two men were pursuing Jamal Weekes who stole items from their home.

There was a heavy police presence and a large gathering at the Bridgetown court, including Knight’s family.

    Had they dealt with him after Shanique Myrie Selwyn Knight would be holding his Queen in his arms tonight and they would have saved him from himself…instead it had to come to this…cause we don’t fix issues…we let them mushroom…

    This is one small step in the process of justice. I hope the Knight family do not have to wait 10 years for a trial. Just like the guy who was the actual thief, I hope Gittens’ trial is just as speedy with an outcome that sees justice for the Knight family.

    According to the Information that I gather, you should never be a Law enforcer. I hope that the justice system treat you like the criminal you are.

    The nerve to apply for bail twice! I am so please the request was denied. Wanna make sure when the moron book into Dodds City he should remain in his birthday suit in an empty cell until the 18 May. We don’t want to hear in a few days time he attempt to make a sharp exit. All the citizens must continue to support the Knight Family by making their voices heard. JUSTICE for the Knight family!

  28. John E Morris April 21, 2015 at 9:43 am

    How come he was not handcuffed on entering or leaving court? Why didn’t the prison bus take him to Dodds?

  29. Another Bajan April 21, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    Let’s wait and see if he gets bail at his next date then the case gets lost in the system as many others have.

  30. Another bajan April 21, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    Great let’s hope he doesn’t get any when he returns to court and then the case is dragged on forever. Also no dismissal on technicalities please
