A MAN was remanded in custody yesterday after he was accused of fatally shooting a man, who was on bail for murder, outside a bar on Hospital Lane earlier this year.
Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain charged Tamiko Coakley, 26, with murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.
Coakley and two accomplices are accused of shooting 29-year-old Theo Williams outside a bar on Hospital Lane on March 24.
Williams died at Princess Margaret Hospital on May 10.
The victim was himself on bail on a murder charge, accused of killing Kendrick Clarke in Culmersville on June 23, 2018.
One of Coakley’s co-accused, Charles Butler, 24, had been previously arraigned for this murder in June.
Coakley was told the matter would be moved to the Supreme Court through a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI). He will be sent to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until the higher court grants him bail.
Coakley’s VBI is due for service on November 23.
