The two men who were arrested in connection with the double murder at Belvin’s last month have been released on bail, the police have confirmed.
Haile “Star Child” Outerbridge and Ricco Furbert were chased into Belvin’s on Happy Valley Road and gunned down on January 23rd.
Two men were arrested in connection with the incident last month, and held for an extended time after the Supreme Court ruled that the police could detain the men for over the standard 48 hours while the investigation continued.
Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro said the police had hoped to obtain a “full range of forensic results by the conclusion of the detention period of both men.” However this was not possible, and both men were bailed with “strict reporting conditions.”
