St Lucy man faces third murder charge while on remand for his second

Accused in relation to three murders over the space of six years, Jamar Greaves was sent back to jail this week on the same prison bus that brought him to the Holetown Court.

While on remand, having been arrested and charged on January 31, 2020, for the death of Marlon Holder which occurred outside St Alban's Primary School on January 16, police have laid new charges for a third murder on the St Lucy man.

Facing two murder charges already, a third charge for the Offense of Murder has been added to Greaves' rap sheet. The first murder charge came in December 2014 for the murder of Albert Boyce which occurred near The City; the second was for the murder of Holder who was shot and killed in close proximity to his young son outside his primary school; and as police conducted investigations, the third set of charges came in relation to the murder of Ken Yearwood.

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, the police in the Northern Division charged the 33-year-old of Grape Hall, St Lucy, for the murder of Yearwood of River Bay, St Lucy. Yearwood was shot at River Bay in his home parish on Thursday, November 28, 2019, about 12.55 pm. He was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Greaves arrived at the Magistrate's Court on the prison bus on Tuesday, February 18, as he is currently on remand at HMP Dodds for the more recent charge in relation to Holder's murder.

Greaves was on bail for the murder of Boyce.

He has been remanded to February 27, 2020.
