Raheem Ricardo O’Neil Hinds was remanded to prison when he appeared in court today on a charge that he did serious bodily harm to Michael Yearwood, a 50-year-old man who died after being struck in his head during an altercation just over two weeks ago.
The 31-year-old resident of Phillip’s Road, Pinelands, St Michael, who is represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder, will return to the District “A” Magistrates’ Court on April 24.
Yearwood, formerly of Hilltop, Pinelands, St Michael, and Hinds were reportedly involved in an altercation at Princess Royal Avenue on March 12.
Yearwood was struck in his head with an object and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH). He was released but sometime later he was hospitalized again and he died at the QEH.
