A soldier appeared before Chief Magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle, in the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court last Friday, charged with the murder of Kareem Wilson on July 21.
Frisco Samuel Julien, 30, of Cantaro Village, Santa Cruz, was also charged with shooting with intent, possession of firearm and possession of ammunition.
Wilson, 29, of San Juan, was standing with friends in the car park of Mellows Mood Bar, Lower Santa Cruz, around 2:40 am when he was approached by three men.
An altercation occurred resulting in Wilson being shot several times about the body. He was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Julien, who was based at Camp Signal Hill, Tobago, was arrested at his Santa Cruz home a few hours after the incident.
