EE man charged with murder

Tonie Miguel Rodriguez, 20, appeared in Summary Court on Tuesday afternoon charged with the murder of Aaron William Berry, 21.

Details of the charge are that he killed Berry at the Everglo Bar, formerly the Pit Stop Bar, in Bodden Town on 23 February.

The defendant’s name has also been spelled as Rodrigues or Rodriques. He is Caymanian and of an East End address.

Attorney Murali Ram spoke on his behalf. He said he was holding for Attorney Nicholas Dixey and would not be making a bail application at this time.

He asked Crown Counsel Nicola Moore for papers in the case and was told they would be served on Monday, 10 March.

Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale directed that Rodriguez be brought back to court the next day, 11 March.

A news release from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said Aaron died from a stab wound to his throat following an incident that occurred at the bar. Rodriguez was arrested soon after the stabbing.
