Zena Moore-Dyer, a senior lawyer here in Dominica, and her daughter, Gina Dyer-Munro, are the new attorneys in the Kenison Charles extradition matter.
The duo replaces David Bruney who was the previous lawyer in the matter.
Magistrate Pearl Williams upheld a request by the prosecution on February 23, 2021, who objected to bail on the basis that Charles was “a flight risk.”
Williams stated that “the court is satisfied that the fugitive was aware of the allegations against him and so the likelihood of him absconding if granted bail is great.” And so the court will deny bail.
Kenison Charles is wanted by the US on several charges.
That includes charges on first-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, first-degree assault, third-degree assault, unauthorized use of a firearm causing murder, unauthorized use of a firearm during voluntary manslaughter, unauthorized use of a firearm during first-degree assault, third-degree assault with a firearm, murder, manslaughter, first-degree assault, and third-degree assault.
The matter has so far been adjourned to April 6, 2021.
