Vicardo ‘Scar’ Farrell who is accused of murdering Devern ‘Snoopy’ Stanley was hospitalized yesterday ahead of his appearance before the Magistrate’s Court.
BVI News understands that Farrell was brought to Peebles Hospital after complaining of abdominal pain.
Highly-placed sources told our news centre that doctors suspect appendicitis.
His condition is not yet known to BVI News.
Meanwhile, Farrell was scheduled to appear before the Magistrate’s court yesterday on charges of murder, carrying an unlicensed firearm, and unlawful possession of explosives.
He was arrested at the weekend after police reportedly found him with a 9mm Smith and Wesson pistol and 11 rounds of ammunition.
Farrell was also implicated in connection with Stanley’s murder.
Stanley’s body was found in Rouges Bay nearly two months after his family reported him missing on June 5 last year.
Pathologists said he died from a blunt force trauma to the head.
It is not yet certain when Stanley’s accused killer will be brought to court.
