No. 67 Wednesday, March 17, 2010
The case against two St. James men facing robbery and wounding charges was adjourned until April 12 in order for the file to be completed.

    Charged with robbery with aggravation is Darren Thomas, while Linsent Hines is answering to a charge of unlawful wounding.
    Thomas was charged after he allegedly attacked and robbed Hines while the charge against Hines was imposed after he allegedly chopped and wounded Thomas as a result of the same incident.
    When the matter came before the Montego Bay RM Court on Monday, March 15, defense attorney Adrian Dayes requested a further three weeks in order for an additional statement to be collected from a witness.
    The two men, who are out on bail, had their bail extended until April 12.
    The allegations are that on January 23, 2010, Hines was walking along St. James Street with a friend when they stopped to purchase CDs.
    While purchasing the items, three men including Thomas approached them with knives and informed Hines that his friend had thrown stones in a car on Strand Street injuring a lady.
    Hines and his friend then accompanied the three men to Strand Street, but the lady was not seen.
    The three men then blocked their path and Hines was robbed of a portion of cash and a cell phone.
    After the men left, Hines walked to Barnett Street and went inside the Super Plus Food Store where he saw Thomas and demanded his cell phone and Thomas brandished a knife.
    Hines then allegedly pulled a machete and chopped Thomas three times.
    Hence the two were arrested and charged.
He was later found dead on Harbour Street.
