Man on bail for money laundering charged for shooting Vaughn Dodds

Dodds was reportedly shot multiple times.

Twenty-three-year-old Lee Anthony of Morne Rachette has been charged with attempted murder and shooting with intent to cause grievous bodily harm  to Vaughn Dodds of Wesley.

Anthony, who appeared before Chief Magistrate Evelina Baptiste this morning, was denied bail and remanded at the Dominica State Prison.

The prosecution, in their objections to bail, argued that Anthony had committed this offense while on bail for money laundering.

They also argued that Dodds is currently fighting for his life at the Princess Margaret Hospital as a result of his injuries and there still exists an ongoing feud between the accused and victim. Police said they feared that these disputes would interfere with their investigations if Anthony is released. They also fear that Anthony’s life may be in danger if released – as a result of the dispute.

Police said that they still haven’t found the weapon in question and are still in search of other persons in relation to the matter.

According to unconfirmed reports, Dodds was shot several times all over his body while amongst relatives on December 14, 2010 in Wesley. He was shot by someone in  a motor vehicle, according to Police Spokesman Inspector Claude Weekes in a previous report.

    Yes vaughn has done … and yes so did lee.what is all the big up about na? I pray that vaughn makes it through and give his life back to christ as he once was and i also pray for lee also.they both need a change of life but trying to kill a man with his child in his arms and his other kid around him that is really out of the question.Thats unforgiveable somebody have to pay for that.But i still pray that that war will end out good in the end and no one gets hurt and change there life

    reponse to admin.u got one of vaughn right in state prison handcuffed to asher u just zoomed in to vaughn so lee is arrested n was charged in court couldnt u make d extra effort outside d court house or while coming in n out of the courthouse n just zoomin on it as u did for vaughn.SO TELL ME DIDNT HIS CHARGE FOR MURDER AS IMPORTANT AND DIDNT DESERVE THE EXTRA EFFORT?
    SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO COMMONSENSE BUT IS WHO PEOPLE DID U MEAN?
    Am i supossed to get a picture for u at the court house? Is it my responsiblity or your? Some people are so incompitent coming with some understatement saying u dont have a picture for him.

    ADMIN
    It’s Christmas and I am trying to be nice. Garcon, we have ONE blinking reporter on duty because that’s what we can afford sometimes. When these guys are going to court, we are no necessarily notified. At the time he was brought to the court, our reporter was elsewhere covering another event. That’s when we were told by a source he went to court. We hurried over but the case was completed so we got the info from the officials. Sometimes we catch it, sometimes we miss it. Am sure he is appearing in court again for us to get a photo. And stop, again, for the last time assuming we could’ve gotten a photo of Lee and did not. We are not related to neither Lee nor Vaughn. Gees I hope you have no more understatements of your home. Sometimes it is better to remain silent…. or erase all doubts. lol

    Tell me people, which power is stronger than God’s. This is a living testimony for every one. If God didn’t give him a second chance, he would be dead, see how prayer is sooo powerful. 11 bullets and yet his still alive, we never lost him not for a moment, in less than 3 days he walking. His not perfect, and we are all sinners, so don’t be too quick to judge. We might all end up in the same situation one day or even worse, the world is not going to be any better. And if u see ur brother doing bad, talk to him, pray for him, don’t be the first to throw stones, judge, or accuse, instead pray for him tht he would change, he may be the one to help ur children on day, u can never tell were u may fall in the furture. Imagine the things thts happening today and tell me God is not coming soon. The signs are coming to pass. Some people may say so long they hear God coming, but let ask u all just a question, how long do U have to live? Think 6o yrs a lot? U don’t know, but the day u die is the last chance and the next when u open ur eyes will be judgement day…do u consider tht a long time for u? U don’t even know how long u’re gonna live, so how can u determine wether its a long time or not.

    Let those who are innocent and without sin through the first stone. All sin is sin, no big, no little! Murderers, rapest ( them man tht using young school girls), theift, those back stabbers, those tht slepping with married man, fornicators, liers, etc…they are all the same in the eyes of God. And wat u wish for others will fall bck right on U!

    These are the people who cause prejudice. Hear it wooty and wesley man. That’s before some one hear u from wooty they already have a bad review. Am a human and I doubt that I wish he. Dies but we(family, friends) have to stop the hypocrisy and live up to the facts; u live by the gun u die by it. We know they not innocent and all beneficiaries care about is the money, what about the innocent that has been
    affected, for example their children the trauma. People like me who don’t feel safe walking the streets at night. To the wife I pray for u only if u innocent may the lord be with u. lord give us strength.

    Every dissappointment is a blessin and every dog has it’s day! Do not categorize every woodfordhill and wesley man as been ‘bad’ for bad is first chance…To the victim and the accused may uall live to see the new year! Pray that fate will b changed in the twinklin of an eye cause if uall do not set aside the foolish behavours that have thinking uall bad….Dog eat uall super! From been with the ‘badest’ man in woodfordhill i could tell u what a lyfe….But when its all said and done, no one is bad afterall..If u both dont decide to put away ur childish ways and see lyfe for what it really is then someone will wipe u out of the picture.I know its hard down there thats y so much ppl trying to make it to another island in search of survival.Be positive and remember with God all things r possible :!: :)

      I take offense to your statement! stop generalizing, my husband, brothers, grandgather….in fact all my male relatives on my mother side are from wesley and I wll e damed if I just stay silent while you run your mouth on Wesley men. Every village have “bad men” so cut it out and leave Wesley alone. We are an independent people strong and able to survive without you! Quit branding us Vaughn came to Wesley as an adult ven though his father is from here. Leave us alone please.
