Alleged murderer remanded
Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A man who is accused of stabbing another to death was ordered remanded when he appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, after he declared to the court that he only reports when he feels like it.

Martin O'Gilvie, of Valdez Road, Homestead in Spanish Town, St Catherine, was taken back into custody after he had been asked if he was fulfiling his bail conditions.

When the matter came up before Resident Magistrate Lyle Armstrong the accused was asked if he was reporting as a part of his bail conditions.

His response caused laughter when he told the court that he only reports sometimes, but takes a few days off from doing so.

He was then ordered remanded until August 21, when the matter will again be mentioned.

Allegations are that on August 13, 2012, O'Gilvie and the now deceased, Cecil Ellison, had a dispute when he left and returned with a knife to stab Ellison who died from injuries received.

An investigation by Detective Corporal Lloyd Knight resulted in O'Gilvie being charged with murder. He has made numerous court appearances where he has maintained his innocence.
