MONTEGO BAY, St James — Mario Deane was allegedly beaten and stabbed by three men in a cell he shared with them at the Barnett Street lock-up over the use of a bunk bed, the court heard yesterday.
One of the accused, Marvin Orr, who was described by his attorney Stacy Young as "schizophrenic" and a substance abuser, was denied bail by Senior Resident Magistrate Carolin Tie when he faced the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.
In her bail application, Young said her client was in need of medication and would not be able to access it while in custody, and suggested a private facility where he was once a patient. RM Tie, however, said he could be treated at the psychiatric facilities at the Tower Street Adult Correctional facility in Kingston.
Orr and Adrian Morgan were both charged in connection with Deane's death, but Morgan was not in court yesterday as he was said to have been getting psychiatric treatment, on order of the court, in connection with another case. A third man who the court heard is deaf/mute was being questioned and was expected to be charged as well.
