PORTLAND, Jamaica — Thirty-year-old Tyrone Nugent of Red Hassle Road in Port Antonio has been charged for the murder of a German woman Ute Sobtaier, killed in Portland on January 14.

Nugent was offered bail in the sum of $200,000 when he appeared in the Port Antonio Resident Magistrate Court on Friday, and is to return on February 28. 

Justice Marjorie Moyston gave him strict bail conditions — he should report to the Port Antonio police between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm daily, and to refrain from communicating with any witnesses connected to the case.  

“You must leave the matter as it will be dealt with by the court,” she warned. 

The mother of Nugent’s child who is suspected to be a main player in Sobtaier murder was also taken into custody, she is to be questioned.

Meanwhile, Marlon ‘DJ Dean’ Baugh, 30, of Baker Hill, also in Portland, who allegedly killed his common law wife Janice, was denied bail when he appeared before Justice Moyston also on Friday. 

Baugh is to return to court on February 7.
