According to report by Observer Online it is understood that Pottinger was the one who bailed the accused — 21-year-old Romario Brown — out of jail on August 29, when he was arrested for a minor offence.
Observer Online also reports that Brown was also before the courts following the April 8, 2016, murder of Alexa Bepatt. The victim who was found partially naked, lying unconscious at her home in Mona.
She was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies where she was pronounced dead.
Allegations are that Brown, a tattoo and make-up artist from Stony Hill in St Andrew, kicked the woman off the bed and squeezed her throat, which a post-mortem report later revealed as the cause of death.
Brown reportedly fled the scene but was picked up on security camera footage and phone records had shown that he was the last person to have spoken to her and it is also said that stolen items belonging to the woman were found at his home.
Pottinger’s missing Honda CRV motor vehicle was found miles away in Stony Hill hours after his decomposing body was discovered.
Brown is scheduled to appear in the St Andrew Parish Court later this month to answer to the latest murder charge.
