Second man bailed after arrests in deadly police raid

A second resident of a home where police killed three suspects was yesterday released on bail on gun and drugs charges.

Justice Renae McKay yesterday set bail at $10,000 with two sureties for 19-year-old Shaquille Morley, whose stepfather, Tony Smith, otherwise known as Jamaal Penn, was killed by police during the May 17 raid on the home they occupied at Newgate Road in Blair Estates.

The same judge granted Morley’s mother, Kim Smith, $15,000 with two sureties on the same charges.

Police charged Morley; Smith, 47; Jane Hilton, 65, the ex-wife of the home’s owner, Attorney Cecil Hilton; and Fristina Wilson, 19, with drug possession with intent supply, possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

Prosecutors say the defendants were on May 17 found in possession of 23.2 pounds of marijuana, with a wholesale street value of $23,200, a 9mm pistol, a .45 pistol and seven rounds of .45 ammunition.

Their trial has been set before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt for October 22 and 23.
