Bahamas: Two men charged with two different homicides

Police have charged two suspects in separate murders that took place over the Independence Day holiday.

Alexander Roberts, 25, of Podoleo Street, is accused of the July 11 shooting death of Marvin Rolle at Arawak Cay.

Prosecutors say that Roberts endangered the lives of others at the popular nightspot while armed with a 9mm pistol, with its serial number erased.

He’s also accused of causing damage to the glass of a Toyota Passo that belonged to Priscilla Rollins.

Roberts did not have to plea to the charges when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.

He was denied bail and returned to court on December 7.

Stephon Davis, 24, of White Court, appeared in the same court.

He’s accused of the murder of Michael Thompson Jr. at a car wash on East Street on July 12.

Thompson was at the car wash when a gunman emerged from a car, opened fire, and killed him.

Davis, who Glendon Rolle represented, did not have to enter a plea to the murder charge. He was denied bail and returned to court on December 2.
