Child killing case heads to trial

Anglin to stand trial for murder in Grand Court

Devon Jermaine Anglin, 24, was committed to Grand Court to stand trial for murder, following a preliminary inquiry into the charge on Tuesday.

He is accused of murdering Jeremiah Barnes, four, at the Hell Road Esso Station in West Bay on the night of 15 February 2010.

One of the witnesses who gave evidence was Jeremiah’s father, Andy Barnes, who was with him at the time of a shooting incident.

Solicitor General Cheryll Richards presented evidence on behalf of the Crown. Anglin was represented by Alistair Malcolm QC, instructed by Attorney Clyde Allen.

Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsay-Hale ruled there was sufficient evidence to put Anglin on trial and remanded him in custody until the opening of the next session on Wednesday, 6 October.
