Lasonta Katrina Gill, the mother of six-year-old Jahan King and her boyfriend Dwayne Alistair Marshall, have been remanded to Dodds after appearing in the District “A” Magistrates court this morning.
The couple has been jointly charged with manslaughter in the death of the former Lawrence T. Gay Memorial student.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant denied the pair bail and ordered them to reappear in court on May 23rd.
Their detention comes almost ten months after Jahan’s death on June 29, 2015.
A criminal investigation was launched last August, with acting Police Commissioner Tyrone Griffith confirming that Jahan died as a result of chest trauma.
