Gya: Curioser and curioser, Alice said

The drama surrounding an alleged death squad grew murkier yesterday when the wife of Ashton King was charged with murdering self-confessed informant George Bacchus. Standing beside her in the Georgetown Magistrate's Court was the handyman who is said to have been her accomplice in the sensational murder that has riveted the country.

An arrest warrant was issued for another man who is reportedly in hiding.

The allegations, read before Chief Magistrate Juliet Holder-Allen, stated that on June 22, Delon 'Fat Boy' Reynolds of Lodge and Deborah Douglas, the part owner of A&D Funeral Parlour, murdered Bacchus.

Between June 22 and June 24, Douglas is accused of counselling, procuring and commanding Reynolds to murder Bacchus. The arrest warrant was issued for Fabian 'Fabie' Jassop, the defendants' alleged accomplice. Reynolds and Douglas will return to court on July 22 for the commencement of the preliminary inquiry into the matter.

Bacchus was shot dead in his Princes Street home two Thursdays ago while he slept. His murder came about six months after the killing of his brother, Shafeek.
So, did businesswoman Deborah Douglas have a real jones for Bacchus, or was this a hit for which she'd bee contracted? Enquiring minds want to know.
