Robinson Murder: Dill & Hewey Found Guilty

February 25, 2013 | 132 Comments

[Updated with video] Both Jay Dill and Devon Hewey have been found guilty of the murder of Randy Robinson. The jury started deliberating earlier today [Feb 25], and returned the guilty verdict at approximately 4.20pm.

At around 8.30pm on March 31 2011, 22-year-old Randy Robinson was shot multiple times in the Border Lane North, Pembroke area, and was pronounced dead on the scene.

A talented footballer, Mr Robinson represented Bermuda internationally at the 2009 Island Games, was nominated for the Bermuda Football Association’s [BFA] Young Player of the Year, and was selected for the BFA Academy team.

JM8_5359 DONE

Jay Dill [24] and Devon Hewey [25] were both convicted of the premeditated murder of Mr Robinson and with using a firearm to commit an indictable offence. They were originally charged with the offence in May 2012, and the prosecution saying that Mr Dill was the actual shooter, and the motorcycle was being ridden by Mr Hewey.

During the trial the Court heard that gunshot residue was found on one of Jay Dill’s jackets, however his brother Kofi Dill claimed that his brother [Jay] was wearing his top the night Mr Robinson was shot dead. Kofi Dill is presently incarcerated for handling a firearm.

The jury was shown a video clip from Kofi Dill’s phone, which showed him and other individuals passing around what appeared to be a firearm, while saying phrases such as, “F&^% Parkside, hate Darkside, kill a Darkside,” as well as referencing names including Jahkiel and Prince.

JM8_5372

The Crown alleged that Mr Dill and Mr Hewey were part of 42, which is a rival of Parkside, while murder victim Randy Robinson was said to have cousins who are affiliated with Parkside.

Both men displayed no expression as the guilty verdict was read out. They were remanded in custody, and will be sentenced at a later date.

Update 4.36pm: Photos of both defendants leaving court today added above.

Update 4.51pm: Speaking after the verdict, Detective Chief Inspector Nicholas Pedro noted that people came forward to assist the Police and Prosecutions Department to bring these “two dangerous killers to justice.”

      After following this case and the evidence presented i do not believe that they were convicted beyond a reasonable doubt, there are many problems with GSR mainly that it can be transferred by touch wind and "cross contamination" by the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT testing labs, also there is no solid motive, no witness that can identify either defendant, an all white middle aged jury (ridiculous), only GSR which is not enough to ruin a potentially innocent persons life. Appeal with a decent defense lawyer.

        @Imnop
        so the judge is a GSR expert?...how about this, if GSR is so easily transferred as the defense stated with wind as a possible option, dont you think most of the GSR would have blown off the bike and or his clothes while speeding away, hence the reason for only finding a few particles ON THE LEFT SIDE as you stated. The lesson in this case, make better decisions on where and who you decide to associate with.

      This is the reason as to why things happen on this small Island. Calling names on Bernews hyping up people with the Blogs. I feel sorry for everyone who has lost a loved one but at the end of the day their is a lord up above and believe me it will be on there concience and oneday justice will be served. But who are people to judge people that have already be in custody and still have nothing on them as far as murder. So before people go of off people gossip stop trying to make people who have served there time have to feel that they are a target whether it be West, East, Central wherever and let the justice system do there job.

      Geesh then you wonder why people are getting killed, stop assuming unless it its factual and if so report it to the authorities otherwise don't have anything to say unles it is positive. Alot of people are passing away over WHAT can a real thug explain that.

  31. Come On Man!!! says:

    There are some deep sociological and psychological problems with these shooters. Locking them up will not change their mentality. They need psychological rehabilitation. When their (Prefrontal Cortex) responsible for higher level thinking, connects with the (Amygdala) an emotion centre witch goes into over drive when a threat is perceived. If the threat is not real the (Prefrontal Cortex) will send a message to the (Amygdala) to calm down, but if the connection is faulty the calming message may not get through. The (Amygdala) is an almond shaped mass of nuclei located deep within the temporal lobe of the brain. Hence acting out in violent ways. A lot of it is inherited from the parents. Studies have found that nurturing a baby from the mother turns on a gene that produces stress hormones. But if children are neglected a chemical chain reaction shuts down the gene causing stress hormones to soar. I think some of these felons to a closer evaluation.

    I followed this case very closely and I don't feel they did it. This was a largely circumstantial case and I thought a jury should be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. As mentioned earlier, the jury was all white and highly paranoid to boot. Before people say race has nothing to do with it, I say don't be naïve. It has a lot to do with it. How are two young, black men supposed to be fairly judged by a "jury of their peers" when the jury is all white, mainly middle-aged white people? Don't get me wrong, I am just as fed up and disgusted as the next person, but I don't want to see the wrong person blamed either. In this case, it seems like the police made a hasty arrest and the jury wanted to see somebody-anybody-convicted.

    Ok glad for these arrests but how many more people have to get arrsted so the shootings can STOP? Is it another 30 people that have to be off the streets? Another 40 people? another 60? another 100? I wish the police would inform us with this type of info so we know how much longer this is going to go on for.

    Start making arrests so tourist will want to come back etc...
    This is only the beginning they need to arrest a lot more people and put them away they are way behind and need tog et things going.
    SO how many more arrests??????????????????????????????????????????????????

      That is why the case went to trial,,12 people found them guilty. The evidence was against them.
      They were known gangmembers as the evidence showed. Accept it ,one of these men would easily kill one of your loved ones or a close friend of yours

    first of they arent gonna be judged by a jury of their peers. half of their peers are idiots, dead, in jail, or know them so that eliminates them from jury duty. second of all u need is strong circumstantial evidence to convict someone. if it looks like a duck, quacks, n smells like a duck than its a damn duck. u shouldnt be in a situation where the police suspect u for murder... i dont feel sorry. u shouldnt have clothes with gunshot residue cause handling a firearm is illegal... case closed

    The most sickening thing to see a person say is "Free so and so" AFTER they've been convicted! Whether these people are your relatives and friends or not, that is just so unappropriate to say! If these individuals weren't leading these lifestyles, they won't be in this bullcrap! And furthermore, if they didn't do these heinous crimes, then why take blame and spend the rest of their lives in jail? And then all you people come on here sounding like complete asses talking about "free my n*&^%, cause he's innocent!" He/they aren't even defending themselves how you all are so why waste your breath? It's stupid. If they have so called friends or family who they feel worthy enough to go to jail for, let them! But don't come on bernews saying free this person or he's a real n*^%$ while a family will never ever see their child again! That is so disrespectectful! The only real &*^%$ in this case was randy, because he was actually doing things with his life and not holding up no wall trying to plot o who to kill next!

    Although, I do not condone someone taking a life, Bermudians need to stop being so naïve and think outside of what is being told to you by the media or gossip being spread. The odds have been against them from the minute their names were blasted in the headlines. That’s exactly what they want you to feed into. They want to portray the notion that they’re guilty so that the naïve ones can agree and ride the wave with them. If your police department was so great, why did it take them a year and a few months to charge these individuals or as they say bring them to justice. They have been roaming free for a year plus after this murder took place. Getting evidence of gun residue does not take over a year; 2 to 3 weeks maximum. Think about it, what were they doing in this time frame?
    All of the witnesses brought forward told several different accounts of what they saw and none of them matched. Since we all like to read the news, we would have read that ‘While the witness could not identify the gunman or the person riding the motorcycle because they were wearing full-face visors, he said they were both wearing dark clothing and the motorcycle was a black Scoopy. Prosecutors alleged that Dill was the gunman while Hewey rode the motorcycle’ If this was the case why could the passenger’s bright colored patterned jacket, that they seized could not be identified. That by no means was dark and could be visible to any eye. Subsequently, tests found several particles of (GSR) on a black shirt taken from Dill at the Hamilton Police, and a single particle in his pants pockets.
    Ms. Murtha also noted that any two of the component elements can fuse together when a weapon is discharged, but such compounds can also come from other sources such as fireworks, brake pad linings or airbag exhaust to name a few. And that misting pattern of so-called ‘blood’ they found, Ms. Johnson noted that Blue Star Forensics also lights up when in contact with some cleaning products, metals or rust.
    Just a few, facts and holes in the case that should be considered. Just because a ‘jury’ of middle aged white people and corrupt police department say that these to black males are guilty, be smarter than that and show them that there are educated not fooled Bermudians out in society. There is a major difference between reading and article and analysing the words put forth to you. At the end of the day I am not convinced by the evidence and lack of solid proof the BPS has presented, and I hope and appeal is made. An outside defence attorney needs to be brought in to stop the foolery of this judicial system.

      @Fineprint, I totally agree with everything you've said. I did not follow this case on a daily basis but I can say that from what I did read I can say there was not enough evidence to convict these 2 young men. First of all was it anybody that gave evidence and said these were the 2 guys that they saw for myself shoot Randy? NO, they clearly stated they couldn't see their faces cause they had on dark visors. If Hewey was the accused rider than why did they not test his clothing for GSR, cause clearly if he was that close to the accused shooter GSR would have been on his clothing as well. I'm sure if they did test his clothing and they found GSR on there they would have used that as evidence to convict. Why is it that the clothing Jay had on couldn't have belonged to his brother? Too much of this circumstantial evidence that causing these men to be found guilty. Show me the real evidence. I've sat in on a case very similar to this only thing is no one was murdered. But I tell you one thing the lies that were told on the accused just to try find him guilty was ridiculous and the things they put in the paper to try make the public look as if the persons guilty was even worse. They definitely don't let the public know of the bs lies those ppl get caught up in trying to frame someone of the offence they've charged the person/s with. All I can say is keep ya heads up Jay & Hewey and appeal!!!! Cause someone has been found guilty of something don't mean they done it, it's just messed up ppl that don't do their jury duty job properly. I say it's time they bring ppl from overseas to sit on our jury.

      If your Zeus, Thor, Buddah, Allah, Amen Ra, Almighty God, Jesus, white Jesus, black Jesus, baby Jesus, Obama, Isis, Godzilla, King Kong or is in control, why do the murders continue? Why do so many Bermudians spell so poorly? Why does KFC cost so much if Bermuda has a bunch of free chickens? Why does Blacka keep telling dry chicken jokes on the radio? He should be out there hunting and eating the feral chickens if he loves them so much. He'd be better at that than at being a comedian. Why do women still have babies for these idiots?

    Keep your pants up bra, bro, brother! SMH!
    Kids! Remember not to get gun residue on yourself, or you too can be accused of a gun crime. You wouldn't want to waste the rest of your life hearing about Somerset CupMatch wins from prison in a room full of old balls. I like when bad guys go to jail. It just frees up more women for the good guys. If the bad guys get out, all they have to look forward to is old, wrinkly, mothball flavored left overs.
    Cold beer for life or cold beard for life? The choice is yours.

    Maybe this is a good thing? Not only did Bermuda take two murderers or even two future murders off of the streets (if they are innocent of this crime), but also prevented two allegedly worthless individuals from breeding and leaving a few single mothers to raise more wall crawling vermin to continue the cycle of destruction!

  63. Here are two ways to determine if someone is truly guilty of a crime;

    1. they show no emotion when found guilty

    2. they don't find anyone credible to give them an alibi to come to court to assist them to get off. (not one person at boat club came forward to help their friend...what does that say?)

    When you get a convict to come to court as your star witness, they realy need to be on point...unfortunately, his brother was probably the one that sunk him. He was very unbelievable.

    Look at Jay's picture...head down, never raised it. Guilty...38 years...check you later.

  64. tricks are for kids.. says:

    I was actually SURPRISED at the outcome considering the evidence that was presented.In speaking to someone AFTER the verdict was read I was told that the members of the Jury paused in the middle of deliberation as they too had questions that they needed to be answered before making their decision....In reading some of the comments I'm surprised that we have any crime considering the "experts" that we have posting on Bernews.....I always try and deal with an "open mind" because the majority of the time what is printed is what they WANT you to know and having sat in on numerous cases I can tell you for a FACT that not ALL is reported....sensationalism is what sells and thats all that you are sometimes privy to.

    At the end of the day it's sad to say but there are no winners. In this case a guilty verdict nor years in prison will bring Randy back (may he rest in peace)...sad thing all around......

    I'm still stunned and although I am never one to say, "Not my child" I cannot believe that Jay (former student of mine)that was found guilty is the same Jay that I had in school not to long ago...just not in his character.....

      You speak of "freedom"...half of the reason why people don't "speak on what they know" is because the confidentiality isn't all there. What makes them "snitching" and someone who is already FREE "snitching" any different? Them taking the fall and being alive could be the difference between them "snitching", being free and getting shot dead then we're left to have another murder to solve. If truly guilty, then they got what they deserved but if wrongly accused, the real murderers will get theirs. God doesn't sleep, AT ALL.
