The security guard charged with the murder of a former teacher, Haile Clacken, had his bail extended when he appeared in the St. Elizabeth Parish Court yesterday.

He’s 38-year-old Shawn Cole.

The police reportedly told the court that a number of witness statements were outstanding.

Cole is to return to court on October 25.

He was offered $1-million dollars bail when he appeared in court last month.

Mr. Clacken — who was a former teacher at Munro College and Hampton School — was shot and killed in Cheapside, St. Elizabeth on June 23.

He allegedly climbed onto a Guardsman security company armoured truck before being shot in the face, allegedly by the security officer.

Mr. Clacken suffered from bipolar disorder.
