Five men charged with murder of British national

Police are reporting a major breakthrough in their investigations into the murder of 49-year-old British businessman Steven Weare, who was reported missing last month.

Lawmen have also confirmed that the body of a Caucasian man, which was discovered in a remote area at Melverton, St George on Friday, September 1, was Weare’s.

The British car salesman, from Kirkham in Lancashire, was last seen alive in Burger King’s car park at University Drive, Black Rock, St Michael on August 23.

The director of Fylde Motor Company, who was reportedly staying at Newcastle Plantation House in St John at the time, was no stranger to the island.

As a result of his death, police have arrested and charged 35-year-old Sunil Decourcey Brome of #7, Alamanda Drive, West Terrace, St James; 30-year-old Keino Nakito Griffith of Pounders Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael; 26-year-old Christopher Darnley Michael Clarke of Oughterson, St Philip; 26-year-old Torio Akiro Watson of Block 6D, Field Road, Wildey, St Michael and 27-year-old Basil Alphonso Branch of Morris Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael.

The accused men are all expected to appear in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court later today.

    Now the police have done their jobs let’s see if the court will finally do it’s duty by giving the sentences that are prescribed by the Constitution if these are found guilty by a jury.
    It must be frustrating as hell to be police officer in Barbados, sacrificing so much time, effort and hard work, then after a conviction, seeing all your work poured down the drain by a bleeding-hearted judge who decides to impose a slap-on-the-wrist sentence to these parasitic vultures often meaning that the cops will have to be after them again for similar offences.
    Frustrating as hell !!!

I believe the Developed countries are taking a look at having the country as a tourist destination.

    If indeed these five suspects are proceed to be guilty ,the full force of the judicial system should be administered.There should be no leniency, no allowed plea bargaining, no bail,or no sympathy .If indeed five young men could get together and implement such a vicious, and deadly plan may God help us all.Maybe there are others who are out there at this very momentous trying to figure out how to rob , and if necessary murder someone else for a few dollars, which will be spent in a day or two.When these thugs believe in each other so much that they’ll sit and plan together thinking that if caught now one in that circle will rat on the others they find out who really was a friend.Who would be willing to take the bullet.That’s when the Friendship ends.

    If you do, this seems to be the Same type of Murder, and “PERHAPS” for the Same Reason.

You Said “If indeed these five suspects are proceed to be guilty ,the full force of the judicial system should be administered.There should be no leniency, no allowed plea bargaining, no bail,or no sympathy .If indeed five young men could get togeth” Well !!!!
