The dancehall veteran is currently awaiting trial for a murder charge involving the killing of Clevelend Smith, a man who attacked and chopped him several times in 2015. Crime Stop has since offered a $300,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of additional persons who they say were involved in the murder. Munga was arrested and charged with Smith’s murder in May of the year. According to the police report, the deejat, whose real name is Damion Rhoden, shot and killed the victim in February this year.
“The police are anxious to get any information on the names and whereabouts of the other persons who were at the location when Cleveland was killed,” Crime Stop said in a statement. Munga’s attorney, Christopher Townsend, says the fact the police issued a Crime Stop reward is a sign that they are not certain that Munga was involved in the murder.
“It certainly clouds the issue as to whether or not the identification that they made was a proper identification,” Townsend said. The dancehall deejay was offered bail to the tune of $500,000 and ordered to turn over his travel documents. Detectives says that Cleveland Smith was shot and killed on February 12 on Molynes Road in Kingston while riding a bicycle.
Munga Honorable has denied having anything to do with the murder.
