New hearing date set in multiple murder case

No. 44 Friday, January 22, 2010
A new date has been picked for a preliminary hearing for a St. James man facing multiple murder charges.
  David Thelwell, 29, of Glendevon, St. James, was charged after he allegedly shot and killed four persons in Hendon, St. James, and injuring three other persons in the incident.
He is charged with the murder of 34 year-old Peter Williams, 34 year-old O'Neil Black, 19 year-old Adrian Wynter of Lime Tree Lane, Glendevon and a mentally ill man known only as 'Kevon' of a Blood Lane address.
  The preliminary hearing for Thelwell was set for Monday, January 18, but was delayed due to the no show of some of the witnesses.
  His next court appearance is scheduled for February 5 when the court is expected to start hearing evidence in the case.
  He will remain behind bars untill then.
  Reports are that on March 8, 2009 about 1:25 a.m., the seven were among a group of patrons at a party in the Hendon community when two men armed with guns entered the premises.
  The men reportedly opened fire at the group before fleeing the scene.
  The seven were later found suffering from gunshot wounds.
  They were rushed to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where the four were pronounced dead and the other three admitted in serious condition.
  Following investigations, Thelwell was arrested and charged.
