Bahamas: YOUNG MEN HAULED BEFORE COURT: Five charged with seven killings

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Five men, aged 21 to 25, appeared in a Magistrate’s Court yesterday in connection with seven murders stemming back over two years, including the June 2019 killings of Ian “Irie” Porter and Raymond Adderley.

Delanzo Cartwright, 25, of Avocado Street, Pinewood Gardens, was charged with the murders of Porter, 48, and Adderley, 46, who were gunned down in front of a residence in Star Estates Subdivision, off Prince Charles Road, on June 28, 2019.

Cartwright was also charged with the murders of George Deveaux and Ashlee Hilton on December 3, 2018, and one count of conspiracy to commit murder of the same.

Hilton, 30, and Deveaux, 33, were ambushed and shot dead as they exited the parking lot of Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre on Fox Hill Road South.

Cartwright was not required to enter a plea to the charges.

The matter will proceed via voluntary bill of indictment (VBI) on November 29, 2021.

When Cartwright appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt, the judge asked if he had appeared before her previously.
