The murder trial of dancehall artiste Munga Honorebel was transferred to the Supreme Court yesterday during a committal hearing. The dancehall artiste, who is being represented by Christopher Townsend, is charged for the murder of Cleveland Smith, who was shot and killed on February 12, 2017.  

 

Attorney-at-law Kaysian Kennedy appeared on behalf of Townsend, who was overseas, when the committal proceedings took place in the Corporate Area Gun Court yesterday.

"Munga was readmitted to bail and it will be processed the same way as before, the reporting condition remains the same, and his location remains undisclosed. Munga will next appear in court on July 3 in the Supreme Court," she told ONE876 EDITOR Claude Mills. 

The purpose of the committal hearing is to determine whether there was sufficient evidence to justify sending the defendant to stand trial before a judge and jury in the District or the Supreme Court.

 

According to police reports, Smith left his Moonlight Drive address in St Andrew on his green Rambo pedal cycle to attend a dancehall session. It is alleged that he was accosted by a group of men, one of whom was reportedly armed with a gun. It is further alleged that an altercation ensued between the men and himself during which Smith was shot. He was then rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
