Third charge of murder laid against Rilland Hill man

A third charge of murder has been laid against Rilland Hill resident Schemel “Jacket” Dunbar.

On Wednesday, Dunbar, 29, appeared before the Serious Offences Court, charged with causing the violent death of Malcom Pollin of Vermont on Sunday, March 12.

Pollin, 52, became the country’s third recorded murder victim, just two weeks after walking free from court after a murder charge which he was facing was withdrawn.

However, Dunbar, who is already remanded in police custody on two other murder charges, seemed relaxed about the third charge.

“Don’t worry, mon, everything good,” he said to officers, as he was being escorted out of the courtroom on Wednesday.

“C’mon nah, mon; yuh done know the life already, everything normal; I don’t worry.”

The Rilland Hill man, along with Richard “Karib” Francis, a 32-year-old van driver and former coastguard officer from Layou and Kendine Douglas, is charged that on May 4, 2017 at Sion Hill Bay, with malice aforethought, they caused the death of police constable Danroy Cozier, 26, of Glenside, Mesopotamia and his brother Nicholas Cozier, 19, of Richmond Hill.

Dunbar will reappear before the court on October 16, 2017, when a PI into Pollin’s death is scheduled. (AS)
