Bail denied for murder accused
A judge on Thursday denied bail to the man accused of murdering businessman Keith Carey.
Jamal Glinton, who is also known as”Bumper”, is awaiting a third trial for Carey’s murder.
Prosecutors allege Glinton shot Carey, 43, twice outside Bank of The Bahamas International, Tonique Williams-Darling Highway on February 27, 2006 before taking a$40,000 deposit that belonged to the Esso Service Station Carey operated on Carmichael Road and Faith Avenue.
The Court of Appeal quashed Glinton’s murder conviction and death sentence on November 24, 2009 and ordered a speedy trial.
Glinton’s trial was set for October. However, then Senior Justice Anita Allen removed the case from the court’s list.
The Court of Appeal ruled that Glinton’s trial judge erred when jurors were told not to consider murder and armed robbery charges against Glinton’s co-accused Dwight Knowles and Sean Brown.
Knowles was given an 11-year prison sentence, and Brown a 10-year prison sentence, for conspiracy to commit robbery.
According to the evidence produced at the trial, Knowles and Brown remained in the getaway car during the robbery and murder.
Vaughn Carey Keith Carey’s cousin who was originally charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery testified for the prosecution in the trial in exchange for having the case against him dropped.
Carey testified that Dwight Knowles offered him$9,000 to set up the robbery. Carey claimed he never received the money.
