'Fat Man' charged with March Pen murders
Marvin 'Fat Man' Campbell has been charged by detectives from the Major Investigations Taskforce arising from the incident in which five people were killed in Africa, March Pen Road, St Catherine on October 9.
Campbell who turned himself in to the police three days after the brutal incident, was officially charged with five counts of murder. He was previously charged for incest and rape.
THE WEEKEND STAR gathered that details of this latest charge was posted on the Jamaica Constabulary Force's official website (@JamaicaConstab) late yesterday evening.
Campbell son, Marvin Jr, 14, was among the five people shot and burnt to death in the incident. The others are two-year-old Koyandra Wynter, nine-year-old Revaughn Evans, Salesha Evans, 24, and Veneisha Bartley, 22.
Campbell, who was handed over to police by Bishop Rohan Edwards, had difficulty retaining a lawyer and was provided legal aid. Following a question-and-answer session yesterday, he was charged with the murders. He is scheduled to appear in the St Catherine Parish Court on November 1 to answer to the charge.
In a previous interview, Jennifer McDonald, whose daughter, Veneisha was killed, told our news team that she hopes that on Campbell's first court appearance he pleads not guilty. Her sister, Sonia McDonald, who has four children with Campbell, held a different view.
"Me lose my daughter, son, grandson and two dogs. My sister lose her daughter and granddaughter. Mi want God just change him heart, change him mind, then send him out go do some godly works," she had said.
