Jamaican charged with murder in Cayman

André Williams, STAR Writer

The Cayman authorities have charged a Jamaican in relation to the 2011 murder of Caymanian Robert Mackford Bush, THE STAR understands.

According to www.caymannewsservice.com, Police have charged a second man with the murder of Robert Mackford Bush, who was gunned down in West Bay in 2011.

A Royal Cayman Islands Police Service spokesperson stated that officers had charged a 34-year-old Jamaican man with murder at 11.32 a.m. on Sunday.

Police reports are that they expect the man who is in police custody to appear in court at a later date.

The name of the Jamaican suspect is being withheld.

THE STAR gathered that Brian Borden from West Bay has already been charged with the killing and pleaded not guilty.

He is awaiting trial, which is scheduled for January.

However, Borden has been in custody for more than 18 months since his arrest in September 2012, and is still awaiting a decision from the chief justice challenging his incarceration under the Bill of Rights.
