Emory Felix Charged with Murder of Mark Gentle

Emory Felix

One of two brothers who police believe shot and killed Mark Gentle on May twenty-fifth, 2015, was arrested and arraigned this afternoon in court. He is twenty-nine year old Emory Felix, the brother of Maurice Felix who is sought by police for the shooting which occurred in front of Gentle’s house on Caesar Ridge Road.  Gentle’s mother Pamela and his stepfather, Calvin Cumberbatch, were sitting in the front of the house when the gunmen opened fire. Within an hour of his arrival this afternoon, Emory was escorted into the courtroom of Magistrate Herbert Panton and was read a single charge of Murder.  The matter of additional charges to be levied against Emory in connection with the shooting of Cumberbatch will be addressed on his return to court on September eighth, 2015 when his brother, Maurice, is also to appear but that is if he is located.    On Monday, June first, Maurice appeared before Magistrate Ladonna John and was charged for the Attempted Murder of Cumberbach and Gentle. But last Friday, he got bail at the Supreme Court and police are looking for him to upgrade his charge.
