Mechanic accused of murder offered $2m bail

A mechanic who is accused of murder after he allegedly stabbed a man to death in a house was offered $2 million bail in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Andrew Comrie, 35, is to return to court on January 31 when the file is expected to be completed.

A curfew order was also placed on him between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. A stop order was also put in place and he is to report to the Mandeville police everyday.

Verbal dispute

The crown is alleging that on the day of the incident, there was a verbal dispute in the house the defendant was living between himself and the now deceased.

It is further being alleged that the defendant left the room where the quarrel was taking place and later returned armed with a knife, which he used to stab the now deceased in full view of a witness.

As a condition of bail, Comrie's attorney assured the court that his client would relocate to another parish, Manchester.
