Wanted man charged with murder, drug possession

Police officers escort Dwight Morrison (center) into court yesterday.

A wanted man appeared in court on murder and drug possession charges yesterday.

Dwight Morrison, 32, of Shirlea, off Shirley Street, is the second person to be charged with the March 2, 2016 murder of Troy Cash, who was otherwise known as “Ghost”, at Fox Hill.

Morrison was not required to enter a plea to the charge and returns to court on April 19. At that time, it is expected the matter will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court for trial.

The first person charged with Cash’s murder became a murder victim himself last year.

Terrance Rolle, who was on bail for the offense, was gunned down at Lily of the Valley Corner on August 5.

In relation to the drug charge, prosecutors allege that Morrison and others conspired to possess marijuana between October 7, 2014 and October 27, 2014.

An arrest warrant was issued for Morrison since the seizure of 118 pounds of marijuana at Arawak Cay.

Morrison and others were allegedly in possession of the marijuana on October 27, 2017.

Morrison denied the allegations. He is due to appear before the Drug Court on March 27 for that matter.

Morrison will have to seek bail in the Supreme Court as the magistrate lacks the jurisdiction to grant bail for the offenses.
