Case management hearing for British man’s alleged killer
MONTEGO BAY, St James — A plea and case management hearing has been set for July 18, 2024 for Jevaughn Brown, who is accused of the murder of a British resident who was shot at a guest house in Bogue Hill, St James, in January this year.
The 23-year-old Baillieston, Clarendon, resident has been charged with the murder of Sean Patterson, 33, a personal trainer from West London in Britain.
Brown appeared before Justice Bertram Morrison in the St James Circuit Court on Monday and his bail was extended. He is being represented by attorney-at-law Sherneika Jackson.
Allegations are that about 12:10 pm, Patterson — who was visiting the island — was at a guest house when a gunman approached him and opened gunfire, hitting him in the upper body.
The police were summoned and Patterson was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Brown was subsequently arrested during an operation in Kingston by members of the Counter-terrorism and Organised Crime Branch.
