Speaking to SEARCHLIGHT yesterday, the prison official stated that Alberto Danzell first visited the doctor on November 18, after taking ill. He was taken to the doctor again on November 25, the day he died.

A post mortem examination was expected to have been done yesterday on the body.

Danzell, a resident of South Rivers, was set to stand before a judge and jury in the High Court at the present sitting of the Criminal Assizes to answer to the murder of Ian Williams.

Williams succumbed to several chop wounds about his body, following an altercation with the deceased on August 28, 2010 at South Rivers.

Danzell is the second prisoner in nine months to have taken ill and died.

On February 5, Marlon Stokes, who was also on a murder charge, died at the prison after he suffered a heart attack.

Stokes, 30, was set to stand trial in the murder of Atiba ‘Crimo’ Waldron, which took place in 2008, at the Shell Gas Station in Pembroke.
