Last year Mavado’s son was charged with murder and has been held without bond in a juvenile detention center in Kingston ever since. His attorney says they will appear in court on May 10th to appeal for bail to be set.
Detectives say a group of armed men, led by Mavado’s son, broke in the house of victim Lorenzo Thomas and shot and chopped him to death. Police say they attempted to cut off the victims head.
Madavo’s son and Thomas had been feuding and when Mavado attempted to intervene he was shot in the process. Mavado fled Jamaica and has been wanted for questioning by the police ever since. He has yet to return from the US where he is a legal resident.
