Case against Jarvis put back to September 12


Murder accused Junior Jarvis will return to court on September 12, 2017.

Jarvis, 44, is charged that on February 14, 2017, at Arnos Vale, he did with malice aforethought cause Randy Lawrence’s death.

He was also charged that he, by force, compelled Arisha Pompey to go from her home at Arnos Vale to the vicinity of Options Supermarket and that he did assault Pompey, causing actual bodily harm.

Lawrence, an employee of the Bank of St Vincent and the Grenadines (BOSVG), was shot six times about his body at around 7 am on Tuesday, February 14, at Arnos Vale and later died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.

On Jarvis’ last court date, the prosecution told the court that they were not ready to proceed in the matter, however, yesterday, when a preliminary inquiry into the Lawrence’s death was scheduled to begin, Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche was absent, owing to another engagement.

Jarvis, a Redemption Sharpes resident and father of five, was also charged that on February 14, 2017 at Arnos Vale, with the intent to commit the offence of murder on Josette Smith of Arnos Vale, he did an act which is more than merely preparatory to the commission of the offence. He is also charged with entering Smith’s house as a trespasser with an offensive weapon, to wit a gun.

Jarvis was the holder of a licensed 9 mm firearm at the time of the incidents. (AS)
