Man accused of threatening Crown remanded

A 24 year-old man, who is alleged to have threatened the Crown witness in a murder incident was denied bail and ordered remanded when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

He is Mark Levy, otherwise called 'Mark Dread', and 'Hotsteppa', of a Kingston address. Levy has been charged with threatening the Crown witness. He was ordered to give his fingerprints to the police and is expected back in court on December 6.

Allegations into the incident are that on June 9, a man was conversing with relatives when a group of armed men approached him, pulled guns and shot him. The female witness and complainant in the matter was able to positively identify one of the men who had later appeared at her house with several other men on November 6, threatening her and carrying what appeared to be firearms. During the visit, Levy is alleged to have told the female complainant and Crown witness, "You a go have police sleep a your doorstep." which made the woman increasingly fearful.

Levy's attorney argued that those were not the aliases her client had gone by and moved to make a bail application. Resident Magistrate Grace Henry-McKenzie told the attorney, "I am not convinced that if he is released he will not interfere," she said while denying bail.
