Three months after being sentenced for manslaughter, Grand Mal resident Kenny Regis has found himself entangled with the law.
Regis, a fisherman of Grand Mal, St. George’s, is accused of breaking the rear windscreen of Nissan van registration number T7519 that is used by the main office of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in St. George’s.
A release issued by the Community Relations Department of the Royal Grenada Police Force said the vehicle was parked outside CID building on Hillsborough Street last Friday night when the incident took place.
The 26-year old Regis is accused of throwing a bottle at the vehicle, which caused the damage.
An informed source told THE NEW TODAY newspaper that CID Officers who were inside the building became aware of the incident when they heard the loud explosion.
Regis has been charged with damage to property. The windscreen is valued at $2,153.45.
In June 2010, Regis along with two other young men, one of whom was his younger brother, Alfred were jointly charged with the murder of Atiba Ghatt Mc Millan of Grand Anse, St. George’s.
However, the State accepted a manslaughter plea that was put forward by Regis,
The Grand Mal resident who was on bail from September 2012 was given time served in prison for the time he had spent on remand as part of the sentence handed down by Justice Rajiv Persad on May 28.
Justice Persad also ordered Regis to do community service by conducting training classes in the field of football to young persons in the community of Mt. Moritz, St. George’s at least four times per month for a period of 18 months.
The post-mortem determined that Ghatt died as a result of injuries to his skull caused by bunt trauma and loss of blood from stab wounds.
