[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.
Jay Dill  and Devon Hewey  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.
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 4.51pm: 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.”
