A 28-year-old man is currently on remand at Dodds prison, charged with murdering Nicholas Blagrove.
Richard Barry Boyce, of 2nd Avenue Kellman Land, Black Rock, St Michael, appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant for the second time in less than 48 hours, accused of committing the indictable offence on May 19.
Blagrove, 34, of Promenade Road, Bush Hall, St Michael, was reportedly among a group of men who were liming and playing a game of dominoes at Seales Avenue, Tudor Bridge, when they were approached by a man armed with a gun who fired several shots. Nicholas was hit and died at the scene.
Boyce was not required to plead to the capital charge after the magistrate read it out to him in the presence of his attorney Naomi Lynton.
It was only yesterday that he appeared in the No.2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court charged with five other men for a number of offences under the Firearms Act.
His co-accused were remanded to the St Philip penal institution for the next 28 days but Boyce was kept in police custody.
He returns to the No. 1 District ‘A’ Court on June 25 with his co-accused.
