One of the persons accused of murdering Trumanyne Daway has tried to commit suicide, BVI News understands.
Highly-placed sources said the suicide attempt happened sometime after appearing in the Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Our news centre was told that the accused murderer attempted self-hanging by using a shirt as rope.
It is said that the accused offender was in police custody at the time of the incident.
Prison Superintendent David Foot yesterday confirmed that the accused is now being housed in the maximum security wing at Her Majesty’s Prison, pending a reappearance in court on May 25.
Two persons have been charged with Daway’s February 27 murder. They are 21-year-old Maybelline Rodriguez, and 26-year-old Vernon Bernard.
Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Kim Hollis described them in court as the masterminds behind the murder and alleged that the duo had WhatsApp conversations detailing parts of the plan to kill Daway.
It is alleged that the two accused also shared photos of the murder weapon during their conversations.
The DPP further alleged that Rodriguez was the honeytrap used to lure Daway, who wanted to have sex with the accused woman at the time.
