Marine accused of murder back in court

The marine accused of the murder of his superior and the attempted murders of two colleagues at Government House made a brief court appearance yesterday.

Able Seaman Jevon Seymour, 35, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt for the presentation of a voluntary bill of indictment that will fast track the matter to the Supreme Court.

Corporal Samantha Miah said the documents weren’t ready and the matter was adjourned to July 24.

Seymour is charged with the April 28 murder of Petty Officer Percival Perpall and the attempted murders of his colleagues Calvin Hanna and Ellis Rahming at Government House.

Seymour remains on remand.

His lawyer Murrio Ducille asked the court to permit his family to buy him food because he had not been fed.
