Robert Fowler, who is the alleged killer of 20-year-old accounting clerk Khanice Jackson, will reportedly seek bail on May 25, which is his next court appearance.
Thursday morning, Althea Freeman who is the Fowler’s attorney, noted her intentions to seek bail for her client when they were in the presence of Justice Ann-Marie Lawrence Grainger in the Home Circuit Court.
Consequently, the 50-year-old St. Catherine Mechanic, who is also being represented by Attorney-at-law Lynden Wellesley, was remanded for a bail application in May.
Additionally, the prosecution informed that the police’s communication forensic and cybercrime division reports were ready and would be served on the defence by next Friday.
The incident happened in 2021 after Khanice Jackson, who lives in Independence City, Portmore, St Catherine, was reported missing. Two days later, her decomposing was discovered in an open lot near the Portmore Fishing Village on March 26.
According to reports, Fowler confessed, and he was detained and charged. It is believed by the police that Fowler lured Jackson to his home under the pretence of forgetting one of his tools.
When she was at the house an argument began between the two, and then he allegedly strangled her with a rope.
The police reportedly found a handbag that is said to be Jackson’s and her bank cards among items at Fowler’s home.
The police also reported that Khanice Jackson and Robert Fowler were in a platonic relationship. On occasions, Fowler would transport Jackson to work.
