Mavado’s Teenage Son To Stand Trial For Murder, Bail Denied

Mavado’s teenage son has been committed to stand trial for murder.

Last year, Mavado’s son was charged jointly with 23-year-old Andre Hines for the June 5, 2018 murder of Lorenzo Thomas, otherwise called ‘Israel’ or ‘Trulups’, who was shot, chopped and burned to death at his home in Cassava Piece, St Andrew.

The “Big League” deejay’s son and Hines were charged with conspiracy to murder, arson, shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

Mavado’s son is also being accused of giving Hinds, an order to behead Thomas. A witness statement given to the police alleges that the juvenile gave the instruction, “Memba di boss want him head.”

Hinds allegedly attempted to carry out the order but only managed to partially sever Thomas’s head. The teenager denied the allegations when he appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court last year.

Mavado’s son who is being represented by Bert Samuels, has repeatedly been denied bail since he was detained last year. Samuels says its because the teenage is before the court with murder and three other charges.

In June, investigators demanded that Mavado turn himself in for questioning. His son, recording artiste Chase Cross, and other relatives were detained at the Constant Spring lock-up in relation to the flare up of violence in the entertainer’s Cassava Piece, St Andrew, community. Mavado’s other relatives were subsequently released.
