Murder suspect to stand trial
Aformer wanted suspect accused of murder and attempted murder was yesterday committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court.
Rashad Reid, 26, of Pastel Gardens, appeared before Magistrate Jeanine Weech-Gomez to receive the Crown’s case against him in relation to the June 30 murder of Kiria Musgrove, whose body was found discarded in bushes off Cowpen Road on July 1.
