WB murder case in court

Grand Court set to hear legal arguments next month

The Grand Court will decide if two men charged in connection with the 2011 murder of Robert Mackford Bush in West Bay will be tried separately or together. 

Attorneys for Brian Emmanuel Borden and David Tamasa agreed on Friday to return to Grand Court for legal arguments. 

The question is the two men whether should be tried together or have separate trials. 

Trial for Borden, 28, was to have started last month. He is accused of murdering Mr. Bush in West Bay on Sept. 13, 2011.  

Tamasa, 34, is charged with aiding and abetting him. 

Attorney Nicholas Hoffman appeared for Borden and attorney Lucy Organ appeared for Tamasa. Senior Crown Counsel Tricia Hutchinson explained the crown’s position. Justice Charles Quin set the matter for Thursday, March 13.
