This morning in Magistrate’s Court, 24-year-old Khalif Williams was charged with unlawfully killing 33-year-old Quan-Marley Lowe during an altercation near Somerset Cricket Club on Monday, June 21, of this year.
Takiyah Burgess, for the Crown, told the Worshipful Senior Magistrate Juan Wolffe that, due to the serious nature of the offense and the possibility that he might interfere with an ongoing police investigation, Mr. Williams, from Sandys, should not be granted bail.
Charles Richardson, Mr. Williams’ counsel, urged Magistrate Wolffe to keep in mind that the defendant has no previous convictions when considering his eligibility for bail.
Since the case must be heard in the Supreme Court, Mr, Williams was not required to enter a plea today. Magistrate Wolffe moved his case up to the Supreme Court, where it will be mentioned during the August monthly arraignment session on Monday August 2.
Taking all factors into account, he granted Mr. Williams bail in the amount of $25,000 and the following conditions: that he be fitted with an Electronic Monitoring Device, that he attend the Hamilton Police Station three days a week, that he adhere to a 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, that he keep away from any potential Crown witnesses and that he not move out of his Sandys home.
Mr. Williams is only one out of as many as eight people allegedly involved in Mr. Lowe’s killing.
