On Friday, October 27 2017, 26-year-old murder suspect Warren Lewis appeared in Supreme Court to hear a ruling on a bail application he had before the court. Judge Herbert Lord handed down his ruling after his attorney Darrell Bradley went seeking bail for his client on a number of unconstitutional wrong doings.

On Friday, October 13, 2017, Attorney Bradley submitted four grounds on which he asked the court to consider granting bail to his client. The first ground was that Lewis has suffered serious hardship because he has already served 8 years and 2 months in jail. Also, that his client has previously undergone two trials and is awaiting the third trial but has not yet been indicated when that would be. The next ground is that during his incarceration, Lewis underwent a psychiatric evaluation because he exhibited signs of mental distress and was once placed in solitary confinement for a six - month period.

On the offence, Prosecutor for the crown, Jacqueline Willoughby, submitted that while incarcerated, Lewis did not display any form of rehabilitation with over 12 infractions against him for violent behavior. Willoughby also submitted that Lewis is a flight risk.

Lewis was denied bail but was told that if the case is not retried by January 2018, another bail application may be submitted. Lewis was accused of the August 18, 2009 murder of Albert Braddick Allen.
