David and Anke Doehm to seek bail on child cruelty charge this Friday

The bail application for David and Anke Doehm, the American couple charged with cruelty to late thirteen-year-old daughter Faye Lin Cannon, will be heard at the Supreme Court on Friday. Attorney for David Doehm, Richard ‘Dickie’ Bradley, confirmed this afternoon to News Five that he and Anke’s attorney, Senior Counsel Ellis Arnold, have filed their papers and secured a hearing date. The couple was arrested following the discovery of Faye Lin’s battered body two weeks ago at their apartment in the north of the island.  Last Thursday, David and Anke were charged with cruelty to a child and denied bail by Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith. Faye Lin’s siblings are in contact with their adoptive father and under the care of the Department of Human Services. When we last checked, there is not enough evidence to press murder charges against the couple, but police continue to gather information on the couple.
