(CNS): The eighteen year old man accused of attempted murder following a West Bay shooting last month has been denied bail. Justin Devon Manderson (left) who appeared before Chief Magistrate Margaret Ramsey Hale this week to face charges of attempted murder and possession of unlicensed firearm is accused of shooting Andy Barnes, the father of four year old Jeremiah, who was shot and killed at a West Bay gas station back in February, News 27 reports. Manderson will appear in Grand Court this morning (Wednesday 7 July) as the new court session opens when a trial date will be set.

Meanwhile, the four teenagers charged with armed robbery at a piazza parlour in Savannah last month have also been denied bail. The three 17-year-old girls and one 17 year old boy who will all be tried as adults have passed the Preliminary Inquiry stage and have opted to go straight to trial and will also appear in court Wednesday.
The boy is currently remanded to Eagle House but Cayman does not have a young offenders institute for girls therefore they are being held at Fairbank’s Women’s Prison.
