New court date for bus conductor

New court date for bus conductor

The man who allegedly kicked a bus conductor from a moving bus causing him to fall to his death while travelling along Spanish Town Road recently was offered $2 million bail with surety in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

The defendant, Kevin Brissett, security guard of a Kingston 11 address who is charged with murder, is to return to court on January 21.

He is to report to the Olympic Gardens Police Station everyday and a stop order was placed on him.

The crown is alleging that the bus conductor met his demise after he was kicked from the bus step on to the roadway by Brissett, who later fled the scene.

The crown is further alleging that Brissett and the now deceased became embroiled in a fracas over Brissett's refusal to pay his fare.

The incident reportedly took place on October 17 about 11a.m. along the busy Spanish Town Road, in the vicinity of Callaloo Mews.

The defence counsel denied the allegations and told the court that the now deceased was pushed from the moving vehicle by someone else.

The dead man has been identified as Trevor Wright, alias 'Shorty' and 'Gieco', of a St Catherine address.
