Two sent to Grand Court for Estella’s killing

The two men charged with the murder of Estella Scott-Roberts have been sent to Grand Court for trial following a preliminary inquiry into charges against them on Wednesday.

In addition to murder, Larry Prinston Ricketts and Kirkland Henry are charged with robbery and abduction. Henry is further charged with rape. All charges relate to the night of Friday, 10 October.

Ricketts, 25, and Henry, 27, are both Jamaican nationals.

Defence Attorney John Furniss advised Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale that another magistrate had appointed him and the firm of Samson & McGrath to act for the men. Mr. Furniss said he represented Ricketts. Attorney Edward Renvoize appeared on behalf of Henry.

Crown Counsel Kirsty-Ann Gunn presented the documents for the committal.

Asked if they wished to say anything on oath or affirmation, Ricketts replied, ‘No, Your Honour, not at this time’ and Henry said, ‘No, ma’am.’

They were remanded in custody with a warrant ordered to produce them to Grand Court on 7 January.
