Appearing in this morning’s [Oct 1] Supreme Court Monthly Arraignment session, David Jahwell Cox stayed silent when asked to enter a plea to the murder of Kimwandae Walker.
Mr Cox  first refused to speak when the Registrar asked him to identify himself. He then remained silent after the two charges were read to him and he was supposed to enter a plea.
Saying that he was “not mute by nature”, Justice Carlyle Greaves said that he would note Mr Cox’s non-vocal response and that he would enter a plea of not guilty to each of the two counts.
Mr Cox’s co-accused, Julian Washington , did speak and pleaded not guilty to the April 2010 premeditated murder of Kimwandae Walker and not guilty to using a firearm to commit the murder of Kimwandae Walker.
Both men must re-appear for Mention at the next Arraignments Session on 1st November and both will remain in custody until that date.
Mr Walker, 35, was murdered at a Good Friday event being held at the Victor Scott school field at around 2pm on April 2, 2010.
