Bail was denied for a businessman charged with his son's murder

The St Andrew businessman charged with the murder of his son was this morning denied bail when he appeared in the Gun Court section of the  Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.

Delton Knight, 64, was recently arrested and charged with murder and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition following the shooting death of his 38-year-old son, Ruel.

The police had reported that about 9:45 a.m. on April 12, Knight, a licensed firearm holder, had a dispute with his son at their place of business in Papine, St Andrew.

During the dispute, Knight reportedly pulled his weapon and shot Ruel in the chest. 

He then left the scene while the injured man was rushed to hospital, where he later died. 

The accused is being represented by attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie, QC and Pierre Rogers.

It is understood that the accused was denied bail for his safety, among other reasons.

He is to return to court on May 13.
