New Adelphi man facing murder charge

Dennis James, a New Adelphi man who some persons have said is mentally ill, was charged on December 29 with the murder of Vidana McKenzie-Williams.

The incident is alleged to have taken place around 10 p.m. on December 20, in the presence of three of Williams’s four children. The 33-year-old woman died on the spot, after receiving a fatal cutlass wound.

Reports are that after chopping Vidana, the accused man ran across the road and struck Avianna McKenzie (the dead woman’s sister) twice with the same cutlass and walked away. He was later apprehended by the police.

James was remanded into police custody. A date for the Preliminary Inquiry into the matter is to be scheduled.(AS)
