Man On Bail Charged With Murder

A man who was out on bail for a 2008 murder was charged in court Friday with two more murders.

Anton Wright, 31, is accused of murdering of 38-year-old Shamaal Ferguson and 28-year-old Damien Webster.

Wright, who appeared before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez in Court No. 1, was not required to enter a plea to the charges.

However, in court he said, “I didn’t do it, sir.”

Wright claimed he has an alibi and said he had no knowledge or any dealings with any of the murders he is accused of.

He said while in custody, the police would not even attempt to listen to his alibi.

He further claimed, while cuffed and shackled, that the officers who arrested him are “trying to railroad” him.

Before remanding him to Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP), Magistrate Gomez told the accused that he will have an opportunity to plead his case once the trial begins.

A voluntary bill of indictment will be served on November 29 fast tracking the case to the Supreme Court.

Until then, Wright will remain behind bars.
