Two teenagers charged with housebreaking
Two teenagers denied housebreaking and theft charges when they appeared before a magistrate yesterday.
Jaynae Knowles and Gino Munroe, both 18, are accused of breaking into the home of Neil Musgrove at Claridgedale on November 27, 2011 and stealing $1,500 cash and a Gateway laptop computer worth $800.
Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez set bail at $2,500 with one surety for the defendants on the condition that they report to Carmichael Road Police Station before 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
A third defendant, Allynthia Bethel, was previously arraigned on the charges.
They return to court on May 10 for the start of their trial.
In other court news, a Supreme Court judge has given prosecutors more time to investigate an inmate’s claim that he is being denied medical attention in prison.
Kermit Evans, also known as Amos Evans, is charged with eight counts of armed robbery and three counts of possession of a firearm with the intent to endanger the lives of three policemen. The charges result from the September 1 armed robbery of Island Luck at Carmichael Road.
Evans appeared before Senior Supreme Court Justice Jon Isaacs yesterday on a bail application, which has been adjourned to January 5.
Evans told the court that his hand was broken in two places and prison officials failed to ensure that he received an operation to mend it.
