The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions will this afternoon offer a voluntary bill of indictment against murder accused Roshaine Barnett in the Home Circuit Court.
23 year old Barnett is charged with the murders of Kimesha Wright and her four children in Cocoa Piece, Clarendon last week.
It’s understood that the Office of the DPP decided to skip the parish court proceedings and take the matter straight to the Supreme Court.
Barnett is scheduled to appear before Justice Leighton Pusey this afternoon, at which time a Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions will offer the voluntary bill of indictment.
It’s understood the Office of the DPP will also be seeking to utilise a new procedural measure when the matter is called up in Court.
The matter is set for mention at 3:30 p.m.
Wright and her four children were found brutally murdered last Tuesday morning inside their home in Cocoa Piece, Clarendon.
Their throats were reportedly cut.
Barnett was subsequently taken into custody the next day in Trelawny.
It’s understood he confessed to the murders in a caution statement.
He was subsequently charged with five counts of murder.
