Robert Fowler who appeared in court this morning via Zoom, will need to return as the case file was not completed. The Post Mortem is still outstanding and the information from the cyber forensic unit will take approximately 3 months to be completed.
Fowler is accused of the murder of 20-year-old Khanice Jackson whose decomposing body was found in an open lot near a Portmore fishing village. The St Catherine Mechanic reportedly confessed to the killing and he was taken into custody.
The matter was scheduled to be heard in the Catherine parish Court today but Paula Llewelyn, the Director of Public Prosecution preferred a voluntary indictment for it to be heard in the High Court, he was remanded when the matter was called up in the Home Circuit Court this morning and he will return to court on July 8.
Partial disclosure was made to Fowlers Lawyer, Lynden Wellesley.
Jackson was found dead 2 days after she went missing. Her handbag and bank card were found at Fowler’s house and it was reported that an argument had developed between Fowler and the young woman before he strangled her with a rope.
According to residents of the community of Christian Gardens where he resided in, he never showed any signs of behaviour that would lead them to be in any way suspicious of him.
The residents further described his actions as a well-played trick because, in the community, he was very silent and was not involved in any altercations or anything Of that nature.
