Webster Edmund of Layou has been remanded in police custody in connection with the Shanice Jemmot matter when he appeared in court Friday.
He is facing ten counts of criminal offense.
Edmund is believed to have held Jemmot 15, hostage for 40 days. Edmund, who had also disappeared during that time, was discovered by police in the Hillsborough Estate area Monday. The police reported that he led them to Jemmot.
The charges brought against Edmund include possession of firearm to endanger life, kidnapping, unlawful possession of firearm and ammunition, possession of marijuana and possession of the said drug with intent to supply. He pleaded guilty only to the drug charges.
The first round of investigation into some of the matters concerning Jemmot’s disappearance will be heard in the St. Joseph court on April 4, 2011.
