Man charged with fatal shooting

A 34-year-old man appeared before a magistrate on Thursday charged with the country’s 45th murder.

Prosecutors say Charles St. Luc fatally shot Patrick Rolle, also known as PJ, on September 6.

St. Luc was not required to enter a plea to the charge when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.

He’s been remanded to the Bahamas Department of Corrections until December 8.

At that time, he’ll receive a voluntary bill of indictment that will send his case to the Supreme Court.

St. Luc’s lawyer, Tonique Lewis, alleged that police officers forced him to attend an identification parade.

According to Lewis, St. Luc did not want the process to occur without his lawyer present.

However, she claimed that the officers dragged him into the room where the identification parade is held.
