A Magistrate this morning declared that there is enough evidence against a police constable accused of murder, to have the matter sent up to the High Court for trial.
Kasroy Simon appeared before Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards in the All Saints Magistrate’s court today and his case was committed to the High Court’s January assizes.
Simon was charged in March 2019 with the murder of a 25-year-old visitor to the island, Nickoma MackFarlene.
At first, her death was believed to be a suicide because she was found with her left wrist slit and a Clorox Bottle and razor near by.
Later an autopsy revealed that she died of strangulation.
Murder is believed to have occurred on February 7,2019 in Freemans Village where the victim was staying with her mother.
