MANCHESTER, Jamaica — Orlando Powell, the Manchester taxi operator charged with murder in relation to the May 6 mob killing of 61-year-old Chieftin Campbell, had his bail extended when he appeared in the Manchester Parish Court on Wednesday.
Campbell, who was described as a well-respected citizen and dedicated community member of Victoria Town in southern Manchester, died after a crowd of people beat him on lower Manchester Road.
Powell, who is said to have mistakenly identified Campbell as a thief, was offered bail on June 2 in the sum of $500,000.
He is to return to court on September 14 as the case file was incomplete when the matter was mentioned before Judge Monique Harrison on Wednesday.
Campbell was last Saturday interred at a family plot in Victoria Town.
