Jamaica Gleaner - - SOMETHING EXTRA - Christo­pher Thomas Gleaner Writer

WESTERN BUREAU: THE CASE against Richard Ewen, the man ac­cused of the 2009 mur­der of Bri­tish con­sul John Terry, will be men­tioned in the St James Cir­cuit Court on Oc­to­ber 10, fol­low­ing his ap­pear­ance in the St James Cir­cuit Court on Fri­day.

Ewen, of a Bull Bay ad­dress in St An­drew, had his bail ex­tended by pre­sid­ing High Court jus­tice Lorna Shelly-Wil­liams.

The court was told that the case against Ewen has been on the men­tion list for fur­ther dis­clo­sure to be done since its ad­di­tion to the Cir­cuit Court’s list. How­ever, there was un­cer­tainty as to what in­for­ma­tion is to be dis­closed.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Ewen’s at­tor­ney, Trevor Ho-Lyn, told Jus­tice Shelly-Wil­liams that the case was to be over­seen by a spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor, ar­range­ments for which have not been done.

“It has been re­quired for the case to be as­signed to a spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor, but to date we have not had the spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor here,” Ho-Lyn said.

Jus­tice Shelly-Wil­liams sub­se­quently set the mat­ter for Oc­to­ber 10.

Ewen was charged in Oc­to­ber 2009 after Terry was found dead at his Mount Carey, St James, home on Septem­ber 10 that year. Terry had re­port­edly died as a re­sult of stran­gu­la­tion.

At the time of Terry’s death, Ewen had been work­ing as a se­cu­rity guard in Mon­tego Bay.

There are 20 wit­nesses listed for the pros­e­cu­tion in the case against Ewen.
