(CNS): Updated 8:30pm – The 39-year-old man charged in connection with the murder of Tyrone Burrell appeared in court today and was remanded in custody to Northward Prison. Leonard Ebanks is charged with murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm over the fatal shooting of the 20-year-old Burrell in Birch Tree Hill, West Bay, on Wednesday, 8 September. Burrell was killed during a social function in the same yard in which Damion Ming was also shot and killed in March. Police revealed in the wake of Burrell’s murder that, although he was not a police witness, officers believed he had information in connection with an on going police investigation.

Detective Superintendent Marlon Bodden said recently that Burrell’s murder demonstrated that silence was no guarantee of safety and things could have been different if the young man had spoken out about what he knew.

Ebanks is also due to stand trial in the Grand Court in February next year in connection with rape charges. The 39-year-old West Bayer is accused of attacking and assaulting a 31-year-old man on Joseph Drive in West Bay in January.
