Foye is accused of entering Decima John’s residence armed with a gun and a knife.

He also faces a second count of rape of Decima John who was shot in mysterious circumstances on July 7, 2004. Her death remains a mystery to the constabulary.

Lawyer Kay Bacchus-Browne is representing Foye.

She expressed concern about matters in the Assizes and wanted clarification as to which would be given priority.

She noted that the rape and burglary charges had been traversed three times.

Justice Frederick Bruce-Lyle was also concerned about the prejudicial effect of the double appearances.
