Court holds closed session for reconstruction King-murders

POSTED: 03/10/13 4:39 PM

CUPECOY, St. Maarten – The Court in First Instance held a closed session at the Ocean Club in Cupecoy yesterday morning for the reconstruction of the September 21 murder of Americans Thelma and Michael King. The trial against the three defendants is scheduled for April 9.
Shortly after ten o’clock the three defendants arrived at the Ocean Club in two SUV’s with dark tinted windows. They were taken straight to the condo of the murdered couple where the crime was re-enacted.

The purpose of the reconstruction is to determine the exact role of each of the three defendants.
A 28-year-old suspect, Meyshane J., has confessed to the murders, but the role of his co-suspects is unclear. One of them is Jeremiah C.M., a teenager who was sentenced in April of last year to 18 months imprisonment for armed robbery – unfortunately, 15 months were suspended, otherwise he had not been on the streets in September.
The third suspect, 20-year-old J.J.W. was arrested in October in last year when he got off a plane in St. Thomas where he has fled after realizing the police was on his trail.
