There was pandemonium in the Roseau Magistrate’s Court this morning when murder-accused Yannick Lander attacked another prisoner.
Lander was brought in from the Stock Farm Prison on his murder charge.
According to our DNO court reporter, it took six police officers to tackle Lander and extract him from his bleeding victim.
Court proceedings have been temporarily suspended because of the incident.
Lander was charged with the murder of Dwayne Pinard of Castle Comfort in 2008 but was granted bail in 2010.
While on bail he reportedly attacked Kyle David and has been remanded in custody for that offense.
Sometime in December 2012, Lander was charged for attacking another prisoner in a Roseau magistrate’s court.
More on this story later.
