Bounty Killer Trial Delay
The long awaited trial of dancehall kingpin Bounty Killer in the Jamaican traffic court was further delayed this week until June 13th.
Killer, whose real name is Rodney Pryce, is on trial for several serious traffic offenses stemming from an incident in 2008.
The trial which has already been delayed several times since, was adjourned on Wednesday leaving the investigating officer bemused.
“As a result of what happened on the day, on the last occasion … I am so confused … I am so confused right now …,” Investigating Officer Sergeant Stanford Riley commented.
Allegations are that on December 29, 2008 at about 3:50 a.m., a police team was on mobile patrol along Eastwood Park Road in St Andrew when they observed a line of cars driving on the road.
A Range Rover which was been driven by Bounty Killer was later observed driving dangerously manoeuvring about in both traffic lanes recklessly and disobeying several traffic lights.
Bounty Killer was then slapped with some 10 charges and was later summons to court.
