Two more charged in connection with Stockfarm kidnapping

first_imgLocalNews Two more charged in connection with Stockfarm kidnapping by: – March 20, 2012 Desmond Phillip of Yampiece and Shirley Allan of Stockfarm were on Tuesday jointly charged for “unlawfully seizing and kidnapping” Leon ‘Dopie’ Joseph of Stockfarm on March 10th, 2012.Police prosecutor Claude Weekes objected to bail on the grounds that the Joseph had not been found and the police required more time to investigate.Weekes told the Court that the police department “suspects” that firearms and ammunition were allegedly used to commit the offence and these have not been recovered either.He said other persons are also being “sought for the alleged kidnapping”.Weeks further asked magistrate Candia Carette-George to “consider the nature of the offence” and uphold his objection to bail. Phillip who is represented by Peter Alleyne pleaded with the magistrate as his Alleyne was engaged in another matter at the time. He sobbed openly in Court explaining his innocence.“I have a little boy and is me that is his mother and father. I didn’t hold nobody. Look at my record; I haven’t been in problem for years. Ask my pastor, I always in church”.Meanwhile Gina Dyer- Monroe who represented Zeena Moore-Dyer for the other defendant, Shirley Allan requested that bail be granted to her client since she had “cooperated fully with the police and has no previous convictions”.She further submitted to the Court that her client should be released on bail and that strict measures be imposed as part of her bail conditions.Magistrate Carette-George denied bail to both of the defendants based on the “nature of the offence and in an effort to give the police sufficient time to conduct their investigation”.She further cautioned the defendants to “cooperate” with the police in providing whatever information they may have pertinent to the incident.The defendants have been remanded at the State Prison in Stockfarm.On Monday March 19th, Jan Bedminster, Kimon Beaupierre and Dilon Alexander were charged with kidnapping Deon Hakim Alfred the other Stockfarm resident who was reported missing by relatives on the same day as Leon Joseph.Neither Alfred nor Joseph has been found.Dominica Vibes News Share 21 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!center_img Share Tweet Sharelast_img read more

MLAX : Syracuse looking to find identity in season’s 1st scrimmages

first_img Published on February 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Comments When Syracuse takes the field in the Carrier Dome on Sunday, it will be searching for an identity. After losing seven starters and All-Americans from last season’s roster, the Orange enters the season as an unknown in college lacrosse for the first time in years.With the first scrimmage of the season this weekend, Tommy Palasek hopes to see the team begin establishing its identity.‘I think we’ve been doing a pretty good job figuring it out,’ Palasek said. ‘But as far as everyone else is concerned, I mean really no one’s seen us play since Maryland, so we have a whole new team for the most part. I think that we’re getting there.’Syracuse will be back in action for the first time since falling to Maryland in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals last May, taking on Le Moyne and Hofstra in a pair of scrimmages at the Carrier Dome on Sunday. The exhibition matchups will serve as a chance for the Orange to evaluate its progress two weeks before its season opener against Albany. With seven holes to fill going into the season, the tune-ups will also be a crucial to solidifying the starting lineup.Head coach John Desko said he is close to determining the starters and lineups on the field after nearly three weeks of practice.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRight now, the head coach said goaltender Matt Lerman will start in net. On close defense — where the team must replace two starters — Desko listed four candidates to join veteran Brian Megill, who is currently battling injuries. And in the midfield, 10 different players are in the mix to see significant playing time. JoJo Marasco, Hakeem Lecky and Bobby Eilers appear to be set as the starters thus far.Though Desko has an idea of his plans heading into the season, there is still some uncertainty surrounding the final roster. And Sunday will allow him to mix and match players on different lines to see how different combinations respond in game situations.‘We see some different things happen in game situations and how different players react. Some rise to the occasion, some take a step back,’ Desko said. ‘And we see how well those have learned the offenses and defenses when they get in a game situation, so that tells us a lot in these types of scrimmages.’With 10 players fighting for time at midfield, Desko said he actually feels more comfortable with the line as a whole than he did heading into last season. Though they don’t have the same experience as last season’s group, which included three All-Americans, Desko said the intense competition has them clicking and learning the offense.The constant battling every day has started to form the identity the Orange is searching for.Bobby Eilers remembers a grueling team workout before leaving for Winter Break. At 6 a.m., every player did six-minute squat holds, grimacing in pain while pushing each other to finish the exercise that left their legs shaking.‘The whole team did it and everyone lasted six minutes, and that’s just what we’re kind of like this year,’ Eilers said. ‘We’re all just sticking together and doing things together, and it’s paying off. We’re meshing very well out there.’Eilers said he hopes that togetherness translates to success on the field for the Orange, specifically in the midfield.The defense — which ranked third in the nation in scoring defense and set a school record for man-down efficiency last season — has been Syracuse’s identity in recent years while the offense has struggled. But the senior wants to see the offense pick up its production this year and return to SU’s old ways when the Orange seemed to go on a scoring outburst every game.Palasek feels the Orange has the ability to achieve that. After a few weeks of practice, the attack characterizes Syracuse as an unselfish group that is always looking for the next pass and has the athleticism to get up and down the field.And though SU won’t know its identity until the regular season begins, Palasek is confident this group will continue the program’s success the same way it always has.‘We’re just trying to stick with the Syracuse way,’ Palasek said. ‘And that’s always been the Syracuse way and play unselfish, and we’re just trying to keep that identity.’rjgery@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
