A Bahamian man and woman were charged yesterday with manslaughter in the September 23 death of their 19-year-old daughter.

Wencil Johnson, 57, and Faye Williams, 47, appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.

Johnson and Williams are accused of negligently causing the death of Juliet Johnson.  They were not required to enter a plea.

The circumstances surrounding Juliet’s death were not revealed in court.

Prosecutor Clifford Daxon said the case will be forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for review.

He said the prosecution intends to proceed by way of a voluntary bill of indictment, which will fast track the matter to the Supreme Court.  The voluntary bill of indictment is expected to be presented on January 15, 2014.

Ferguson-Pratt granted bail to each accused in the amount of $15,000 with two sureties.

Johnson and Williams were represented by attorney Heather Hunt.
