Mario Deane’s Case Delayed

Outstanding information in the Mario Dean case has once again prevented the case against the two accused from moving on in the St. James Resident Magistrate’s Court.

The two men charged by the police are 35-year-old Marvin Orr and 25-year-old Adrian Morgan.

Both men have mental illnesses.

Among the outstanding information are Orr’s forensic psychiatric report and an electronic copy of the crime scene footage.

Senior Resident Magistrate Carolyn Tami asked the clerk of court to pursue the information, and set a mention date of February 20.

Meanwhile, attorney Trevor Ho-Lyn, who is representing Orr, told the court that his client has not been receiving his medication from Police on duty at the Falmouth lock up in Trelawny.

Both Orr and Morgan were receiving treatment at the Adult Remand Centre in St. Catherine.

However, Orr was transferred to the Falmouth lock up earlier this week for today’s court appearance.

In related news, RM Tami has set a preliminary hearing date of February 13 for the three police officers charged by the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM), in relation to Dean’s death.

The three, who are on a 400-thousand dollars bail, are Woman Corporal Elaine Stewart, and District Constables Marlon Grant and Juliana Clevon.

They’ve been charged for manslaughter, perverting the course of justice and misconduct in a public office.
