Teen Facing Murder Charge

Nineteen -year-old Travis Lockhart of Yellow Elder gardens appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyanne Ferguson Pratt yesterday  accused of killing Anthony Anton McKenzie on October 12th 2017.

The accused indicated that he was represented by Glendon Rolle, but Mr. Rolle was not present at the arraignment.

Lockhart told the court he wears an ankle monitor – as required from a previous offence – adding that the bracelet should indicate that he was at home in Yellow Elder,  as opposed to Fox Hill where the incident is alleged to have taken place.

The magistrate said she took this factor into consideration. However Lockhart was not required to enter a plea and was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Corrections until February 23rd when his matter will be fast tracked via a voluntary bill of indictment.

This is the second time Lockhart has appeared in court this month

On Dec 9th,, Lockhart was charged with disorderly behavior, obscene language, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and causing damage.

It is alleged that on December 7, 2017, while at the Central Detective Unit, Lockhart behaved in a disorderly manner, used obscene language, and caused damage to an officer’s $80 shirt.

Lockhart pleaded  not guilty to all five charges.

He was awarded $1,500 bail with one surety.

His attorney, Glendon Rolle, alleges  that  Lockhart was beaten  while he was in custody.
