Kevon Bascombe Remanded To Prison

Kevon Bascombe Remanded To Prison

Thirty-year-old Kevon Bascombe of Cherry-Hill, St. George’s made his first court appearance last Friday and was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison on a charge of non-capital murder involving the death of forty-five-year-old Judith Joseph of Grand Anse, following a stabbing that occurred in the vicinity of the St. George’s Fish Market on Melville Street on Tuesday 1st August.

Bascombe pleaded guilty to the offence but was unable to be considered for bail, as the Magistrate Court cannot grant bail for murder. He was advised by Magistrate Tamara Gill to seek an attorney since he had no legal representation at his first court hearing.

The murder accused is due to make his second court appearance at the N0.2 magistrate court for mention on August 25th before magistrate Tahira Gellineau. 

A summon has also been issued for the witnesses to return to the N0.1 Magistrate court on September 12th, 2017 for the commencement of the court hearing.

Emmanuel Noel, the companion of the deceased woman told the Grenada Informer on Monday that his girlfriend last worked at the Tropicana Inn before her untimely death and described her as a good, loving and easy going person; the person whom he intended to marry and spend the rest of his life with. He noted that Judith was the mother of five children.

 An autopsy performed on the deceased woman revealed that she died as a result of a punctured lung.
