Marine denies Government House murder

The marine accused of murdering a superior officer and of the attempted murders of two other marines at Government House yesterday denied the charges.

Jevon Seymour, 35, appeared before Justice Carolita Bethell and was charged with the April 28 murder of Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) Petty Officer Percival Perpall and the attempted murders of Calvin Hanna and Ellis Rahming.

Seymour is also accused of possession of a firearm with the intention of endangering the lives of Hanna and Rahming.

Seymour, who lost a considerable amount of weight, denied all charges.

He remains in custody. He will appear before Justice Bernard Turner for a fixture hearing on August 23.

Wearing tee-shirts that said “Justice for Jevon”, his supporters, who were outside the court, shouted that he was innocent when he walked past.

Some of them started shouting at officers who told them to quiet down as they were disturbing other courts.

Destiny McKinney appeared for the Crown and Krysta Mason-Smith appeared for Seymour.
