Degallerie being escorted out of court, as his lawyer looks on

Shane Degallerie of Pottersville has been charged with the murder of 18-year-old Justin Joseph of Fond Cole, who died from a single stab wound on Friday night.

Degallerie appeared at a Roseau Magistrate’s Court moments ago, before Magistrate Tiyani Behanzin.

He was not required to plead since the offense is an indictable one to be heard before a judge and jury at a High Court.

Justin was rushed to the Princess Margaret Hospital, where he succumbed to his wound. Degallerie was also hospitalised.

The preliminary inquiry for the matter was set for August 30, 2010.

Geoffrey Letang is Degallerie’s lawyer.
