Bail Denied for Accused Murderer George Bull

George Bull

A man, who is charged with a murder that occurred in 2017 and for whom a preliminary inquiry has still not been completed, was denied bail today in the Supreme Court.  Crown Counsel Reese Cattouse explained that George Bull has still not been committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court because there was a delay with his P.I. at the Magistrate’s Court.  However, Justice Francis Cumberbatch ruled that the preliminary inquiry be conducted within two months and that Bull can seek bail at that time.  The crown objected to bail on grounds that Bull is not being deprived of his right to a fair trial within a reasonable time.  Bull is accused of the December 2017 murder of James Pelayo in Orange Walk.
