DPM Robbery Suspect Awaits Bail

Jeffrey King, one of three male suspects accused of the December 16, 2013 robbery at the deputy prime minister’s home, will have to wait another week before he finds out whether or not he will be granted bail.

King, 25, appeared before Supreme Court Justice Vera Watkins on Tuesday afternoon for an expected ruling on a bail request from his attorney.

Justice Watkins said however, that as a result of another trial she was unable to address the matter and would be ready to do so on May, 26 at 1 p.m.

It was two years ago when King along with 25 year-old Tyrone Knowles and 21 year-old Marc McCartney were accused of robbing Deputy Prime Minister Philip Davis and his wife at their Westridge home.

Mr. Davis was robbed of jewellery worth $93,000, a jewellery box worth $200, Baraka gold jewellery worth $700, an opal top wallet worth $450, a Royal Bank of Canada credit card and a driver’s licence worth $15.

Ann Marie Davis, Mr. Davis’ wife, was also robbed of $2,953 and his driver Wilberforce Seymour was robbed of $10.
The men are expected to stand trial on May 2, 2016, if the matter does not begin trial on July 6 of this year.
