Construction worker charged with killing teen

A man accused of killing a teen and dumping her body on Yamacraw Beach has been charged with murder.

Prosecutors say that Gabrion Thompson, 28, of Cowpen Road, unlawfully caused the death of 17-year-old Kenrika Martin.

The 17-year-old was last seen alive when she left her home in Nassau Village on November 26.

Her partially naked body was found on the beach the following day.

The construction worker was not required to enter a plea to the charge and has been denied bail.

He returns to court on February 6 when it is expected that the case will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court for trial.
