A 22-year-old man accused of murdering a two-year-old infant was not required to enter a plea to the murder charge he faced when arraigned in Magistrate’s Court.
Trevor Carey of Sumner Street was handcuffed and shackled as he was brought before Acting Chief Magistrate Joyanne Ferguson-Pratt concerning the beating death of Teon Morley.
Carey is alleged to have murdered the toddler on August 16.
Morley was found unresponsive in his Allen Drive home around 3pm with injuries on his body.
Carey, who was not legally represented in the proceedings, was told that his case would be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court for trial through service of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment.
The presentation is scheduled for November 18, his next court appearance.
He was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison until completion of his trial.
