A 21-year-old woman was yesterday charged with the shooting murder of Marcian Edgecombe earlier this month.
Prosecutors say that Linique Brennen, of Malaysia Way, Elizabeth Estates, is responsible for Edgecombe’s death on April 8.
According to police, Edgecombe was sitting in the front room of an apartment in Fox Dale when a gunman fired through the window.
Edgecombe died on the scene.
Brennen was charged with non-capital murder during her appearance before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.
The magistrate remanded Brennen to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services as she does not have the jurisdiction to consider or grant bail on the charge.
Brennen makes her next court appearance on May 31 when the case will be transferred to the Supreme Court, where she will be arraigned and informed of a trial date.
Defense lawyer Mark Rolle alleged that officers at the Central Detective Unit placed bags over Brennen’s head.
Brennen is the second woman to be charged with murder this year.
Earlier this month, Victoria Gibson, 19, of Key West Street, was charged with the March 31 stabbing murder of Terenova Stubbs at Potter’s Cay Dock.
