Two appear in court charged with murder of Jason Powery

Set to mention in Grand Court

Justin D’Angelo Ramoon and Osbourne Wilfred Douglas appeared in Summary Court on Thursday morning charged with the murder of Jason Charles Powery on the night of Wednesday, July 1. 

Ramoon, 23, and Douglas, 28, were also charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm, but no details were listed as to make or type. 

Defense attorney Fiona Robertson represented both men. She noted that murder is a charge that must be dealt with in the Grand Court. 

Magistrate Grace Donalds set the matter for mention in Grand Court on Friday, July 31. 

Ms. Robertson asked that the defendants be brought to court in person rather than appear via video link. 

They were remanded in custody until then. Their charge sheet shows the same address for both men, a residence on Myles Lane in George Town. 

In a press release issued by police after the incident, Mr. Powery, 20, was described as a resident of West Bay. He died after being shot in the head in front of a house on Martin Drive, off Shedden Road, in George Town.
