The fate of Matthew Moore, who has been on remand for the past eight years on a charge of murder, will be decided by Supreme Court Judge Justice Colin Williams. Moore’s fate will be decided on Friday, June 8, 2018 after Justice Williams decides whether or not he has met the requirements for bail.

Moore took his application for bail to the Supreme Court on Monday, June 4, 2018. The crown submitted that bail is being objected to given that Moore is charged with murder, a capital offense. They also submitted that he is a flight risk and that he poses a threat to public safety. His attorney, Oscar Selgado, submitted that his client’s right to a fair trial within a reasonable time has been breached.

Moore was arrested and charged on April 12, 2011 for the shooting incident which claimed the life of 29-year-old Andrew Moses on March 20, 2010. Moses was on his way home from his job working with Minister Anthony “Boots” Martinez when a lone gunman chased him from the intersection of Caesar Ridge Road to that with Pen Road. He was shot multiple times to the left side of his chest, abdomen, and leg. A total of eight expended shells were recovered from the scene.
