Murder accused and former West St. Mary Member of Parliament, Jolyan Silvera, is set to return to court in downtown Kingston on Thursday at 2:00 pm.

Silvera is charged with the murder of his wife, Melissa Silvera. He’s also charged with using a firearm to commit a felony.

Melissa was initially reported to have died from natural causes in November last year. The matter was upgraded to a murder investigation after an autopsy revealed bullet fragments inside her body.

The police say Melissa Silvera was shot dead while she slept at the matrimonial home.

Jolyan Silvera insists he’s an innocent man.

The media remains barred from covering the proceedings, in keeping with the Gun Court Act.
