A Fox Hill resident has been charged with plotting to murder another man from the area.
Jefford Roberts, 23, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt Tuesday on a conspiracy to commit murder charge.
Prosecutors allege that Roberts and others conspired to murder Aurelio Deal on September 16.
Roberts, who is represented by Miranda Adderley, was not required to enter a plea to the charge. Roberts alleged through his lawyer that police beat him upon arrest.
Ferguson-Pratt made note of the complaint and remanded Roberts to custody.
He returns to court on November 7.
