Forty-one-year-old Mikey Pompey had his charge of causing grievous bodily harm substituted with that of manslaughter, following the death of the victim, Silma Bacchus of Richland Park.
Pompey was charged with unlawfully causing grievous bodily harm to Bacchus at Richland Park on Emancipation Day.
He was remanded pending bail review when he initially appeared at the Serious offences Court on the indictable charge last week Wednesday.
Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delpleche objected to bail then, stating that the victim was warded at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital in critical condition, after allegedly being slammed onto the pitch (road surface).
However, when Pompey returned to Court this week, the Prosecutor informed that the victim had died, and the grievous bodily harm charge was substituted with that of manslaughter.
Pompey was granted $40,000 bail with one surety on a number of conditions, including reporting requirements, and the surrendering of his travel documents.
He was represented in Court by Attorney Sharmine Walters.
