Webster murder case adjourned for 5 weeks

| 29/09/2014

(CNS): Jose Guadelupe Sanchez (27) made his first Grand Court appearance, Friday, facing charges of murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm for the killing of Solomon Webster. The crown say Sanchez is the man who gunned down Webster on Sunday 7 September in Miss Daisy Lane, West Bay at around 8-30pm. The 24 year old Special Olympic gold medal winner was shot in the groin and died in hospital as a result of his wound later that night. Sanchez has not yet answered the charges and his local attorney Guy Dilliway-Parry asked for a five week adjournment to discuss the case with his client and to look at the possibility of instructing leading counsel.

Although the incident occurred in what is known as the local Logwoods gang’s neighbourhood the police have stated that they have no reason to believe that Webster’s killing was gang related.

In addition to the murder charge laid against Sanchez two other men have also been charged with accessory after the fact as they are alleged to have assisted Sanchez to evade the authorities in the wake of the shooting. Graham David Lauer aged 60 and 30 year old Blake Christopher Barrell were both granted bail in the summary court recently.
Sanchez appeared in Grand Court Friday via video link and is currently remanded in custody to HMP Northward.
