TWO REMANDED FOR ALLEGED CONTRACT KILLING
GEORGE HENRY, STAR Writer

Two central Jamaica residents who were held in connection with the planned contract killing of a banking executive in Manchester more than a month ago were again remanded in the Mandeville Resident Magistrate's Court recently.

Marvin Morris from Clarendon and Angella Butler of Manchester were again remanded by Resident Magistrate Desrene Alleyne. They are to return to court on Friday, January 10, 2014.

Morris and Butler were held by the police when an alleged contracted killer confessed he was unable to carry out the murder because of the appearance of two angels.

The man told the police that he went to kill the banker, who is also an elder at a church in Manchester, but when he saw the angels he fell to his knees and started to cry. He shared that the angels told him he could not harm the church leader.

The contracted killer reportedly asked the elder to pray for him before he was taken to the Spaldings Police Station where he confessed his intentions to the police.

The man said he should have used a screwdriver to kill the elder. It was also revealed that he was to receive $60,000 to commit the deadly act.

Morris and Butler were arrested by the Spaldings police for solicitation to commit murder.
