Roots FM News understands that the case involving Noel Maitland was today closed in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court and transferred to the Home Circuit Court, Downtown Kingston for a case management hearing.
This means that a judge, the defence, and the prosecution will go over procedural issues related to the case ahead of trial.
Meanwhile, Family members and supporters of slain social media personality Donna-Lee Donaldson are again protesting outside the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.
Maitland’s bail hearing was stood down in August following the non-disclosure of witness information that the defence had no prior knowledge of. There was deliberation and the hearing was pushed back to today.
Our reported Dudley Thompson is on location at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court and will update us on the progress of the case.
