Stephan Jenkins and Steve ThompsonOn Monday, November 12th, Police formally charged two teenagers for the murder of 54-year-old Dennis ‘Bo’ Williams. The men, 18-year-old Ashton Steve Thompson, and 18-year-old Stephan Devon Jenkins, both former students of Gwen Lizarraga High School, appeared before Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer where they were charged with murder and keeping an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. Because of the nature of the offence, both men were remanded to prison until December 13th.

Just minutes before midday on Thursday, November 8th, four men entered Three Star Quality Chicken located at #46 Vernon Street in an attempt to rob the place. As the men were inside the establishment, they met resistance from Dennis Williams who struggled with one of the assailants for a gun which he had in his possession causing it to fall to the ground. As the gun fell, an accomplice quickly picked it up and fired at Williams killing him.

Quick police response led them to the detention of Thompson and Jenkins and the recovery of a 9 millimeter pistol loaded with 3 live rounds.
