Man Charged for MP’s Brother’s Murder

Twenty-two-year-old Lynden Williams was formally charged in the Magistrate’s Court for the murder of Cabrio Wells, the younger brother of Minister of Transport and Local Government Renward Wells. 

The prosecution agreed to proceed with a voluntary bill of indictment and the Ridgeland Park resident was not required to enter a plea. 

During the hearing, Williams’ attorney revealed to Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt allegations of his client being attack by two police.

The attorney claimed that on August 15, during a police interview, Williams informed him that police placed a fish bag over his head while handcuffed and he was kicked about his body and head. He added that Williams had to bite the bag in order to breath. 

Although Williams said he knew nothing about the murder, the police warned him to confess if he wanted to live.

 His attorney saw marks on his hand, right shoulder and back during the police interview and showed detectives.  The interview stopped so Williams could be taken to hospital.

His counselor was supposed to be notified when the interview resumed. However, the interview was continued without a lawyer present. 

In court, Williams complained about experiencing pain on his left arm and back. The magistrate ordered that instead of going to the hospital that he be seen by the prison physician as soon as it is reasonably practical.

He is expected back in court on October 22.
