Three remanded for murder of JDF member

Three men charged with murder of 19-year-old Leacham Whyte, a member of the Jamaica Defence Force, were remanded when they appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Those answering to a charge of murder are Gevena Bryan, Paul Thompson and Mario Dunn all of Spanish Town, St Catherine.

When the matter came up before Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe-Reece, the men told the court they were represented. They were asked to name the attorney-at-law but they were unable to remember the lawyer's name.

The court then ordered that the three accused be remanded and reappear on February 5.

Allegations before the court are that on December 29 last year, Whyte went missing. Investigators revealed that he had gone to look for a female acquaintance in New Nursery. He was reportedly killed and his body buried in a shallow grave in the community.

After retrieving the body, an investigation was launched which resulted in the arrest and charge of the three men.
