Kevaughan Staine remains on remand after he was convicted on a charge of attempted murder. This conviction took place on Friday, May 4, 2018 before Supreme Court Justice Colin Williams. Staine was charged for the attempted murder of Taisha Staine, his cousin.

The incident occurred just a stone’s throw away from the victim’s house on Gladden Street in the St. Martin’s de Porres Area on December 13, 2013. It was witnessed by Taisha’s mother who saw the gunman but did not recognize that it was her daughter that the gunman was attempting to kill. Taisha was shot at least eight times, once to the neck, twice to the chest, once in the back, thrice to her left hand, and once to her left leg and thigh.

In court on May 4, Justice Williams concluded that Staine was guilty of the charge after carefully dissecting the evidence brought before him. Staine’s sentencing was deferred until September 24, 2018. Staine also has another attempted murder charge pending trial at the Supreme Court.
