Bail extended for accused trio in businesswoman's murderThursday, March 04, 2021
MANDEVILLE, Manchester — The three people who were charged with murder in relation to the November 26, 2020 stabbing death of 63-year-old businesswoman Marcia Chin-you had their bail extended when they appeared in the Manchester Parish Court, yesterday.
Shacquel Perkins, 24, a carpenter of Woodlawn Crescent; Dwayne Brown, 36, a security firm manager; and his 34-year-old girlfriend Zoie Forrester, businesswoman, both of Oakland Drive, are set to reappear before Acting Senior Judge John Tyme on May 19.
They are being represented by attorney-at-law Marcus Greenwood.
Greenwood told the Jamaica Observer that lab reports were still outstanding in relation to the case.
On December 8 the two men — Perkins and Brown — were offered bail in the sum of $800,000 each, while Forrester's bond was $500,000.
Chin-you's body was found by neighbours with stab wounds on the night of November 26 in her motor car. The car was parked in the driveway of her home in the upscale Ingleside community in Mandeville.
