Alleged shooters of Rodwell Williams to stand trial

The two men who were accused in 2010 of shooting the Prime Minister’s legal partner, Attorney, Rodwell Williams, will stand trial in the Supreme Court for attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm and dangerous harm. That decision followed a preliminary inquiry held this morning before Magistrate Edd P. Usher in the case against Ricky Valencia and Akeem Thurton.  The matter was a paper committal since the evidence before the court was not challenged. Bail was offered in the sum of eight thousand dollars each, but only Thurton was able to meet bail and Valencia remains in police custody. Williams was shot on June first as he was leaving his law office, Barrow and Williams on Albert Street.  He was shot once in an execution attempt by two assailants in an adjacent parking lot. Following the incident, Williams had to be flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida where he underwent several rounds of surgery.
