Three persons have officially been charged in connection with Trumayne Daway’s murder.
Police charged 26-year-old Vernon Bernard of Dominica with murder and unlawful possession of a firearm, while 27-year-old British Virgin Islands native Rafael Harrigan is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.
Twenty-one-year-old Maybelline Rodriguez had already been charged.
“All three will appear at the next sitting of the Magistrate’s Court,” police said in a media release Sunday night, March 4.
The accused trio was arrested and charged mere days after Daway was shot and killed.
Found dead in vehicle
Police had found Daway unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a vehicle in Brandywine Bay on Wednesday morning (February 28).
He had gunshot wounds to his body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Daway is the third person to have been murdered this year.
The other two persons that were killed are Michael Stevens and Clevaughn Sweeney.
The duo was gunned down near Althea Scatliffe Primary in Road Town more than two weeks ago.
There has been a number of other shootings on Tortola and some have resulted in injuries.
