The police have charged Jemoure “Rayamond” Craigg, 30 and Jamille “Sheep” Christian Charles, 28 for the murder of Almack “Jahute” Lambert who was gunned down on February 12 this year.
The accused men were taken before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh yesterday and were remanded to prison since the adjudicator does not have the authority to grant them bail.
The murder accused must return to the St John’s Magistrates’ Court on June 15 for committal – a process used to determine whether there is enough evidence to forward the case to the High Court for trial.
Attorneys Jan Peltier and Sherfield Bowen represented the duo.
According to earlier police reports, 38-year-old Lambert, who resided in Nut Grove, was reportedly visiting a neighbour in the area when the incident occurred.
It is alleged that shortly after 8 pm, several residents heard the gunshot but had no idea what had happened until they saw Lambert collapse in distress on the gallery at the house he was visiting.
Witnesses reported the matter to the Gray’s Farm Station and the ambulance was also summoned. He was rushed to the Mount St John’s Medical Centre (MSJMC) where he was pronounced dead some time after 9 pm the same night. The police said he was shot in the upper body.
Investigators reportedly recovered a spent shell from the scene but the gun used is yet to be found.  The visually impaired man was a craftsman who wove chairs and baskets. He also made mops at the Industrial Workshop for the Blind. His friends had described him as being very kind and “willing”.
