According to a report by Loop Jamaica, there were dramatic scenes in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrates Court this morning as one of the accused in the murder of Mario Deane, Adrian Morgan claimed his co-accused Marvin Orr was the man responsible for the death of the 31 year old man.
Morgan, who the court later heard has not been taking his psychiatric medicine, had to be taken from the court room after his profanity-filled tirade interrupted the short proceedings.
“Wha you a touch me fah, you a police?” Morgan shouted at Orr, who was seated right beside him in the prisoners’ dock.
“A you kill the people dem pickney and call up me name…all me a plea guilty for is that me give him two kick,” Morgan said as his voice got louder despite police officers trying to calm him down.
The case, as well as the one involving three police officers who were also charged, were postponed until October 9th as Senior Resident magistrate Caroline Tie who had started the proceedings was absent.
Orr and Morgan were both charged with the murder of Deane who died in the Cornwall Regional Hospital on August 6th three days after he was badly beaten while being held on a charge of possession of a small amount of ganja.
