Man Awaits Sentencing For Murder

A 20-year-old man awaits sentencing after being found guilty of a murder in the nation’s second city on Tuesday.

Bendricko “Buju” Bain appeared before Justice Hartman Longley in the Supreme Court.

The conviction is in relation to the death of Kevin Alexander Carey of McLeans Town in October 2009.

Police discovered Carey’s body in a car through a dirt road off Pioneer’s Way near the Jack Hayward High School on Thursday, October 8, 2009.

The 25-year-old was discovered with a gunshot wound in a slumped position in the driver’s seat of a brown 1996 Buick Century vehicle.

His death was recorded as the ninth for Grand Bahama that year.

Police said Carey was found around 11:00 a.m. near the Jack Hayward High School when officers from the Central Detective Unit were investigating another matter.

Bain, who was a teen at the time, reportedly led the police to the area.

He was initially arraigned on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 and was represented by Attorney K. Brian Hanna.

The prosecution was represented by Attorney Erica Kemp.

The prosecution called 14 witnesses.

Bain’s sentencing has been scheduled for August 3.
