The court was told that Cecil and his cousin were going home from a party which was held at “area H” ground Rose Hall Town. Whilst going through their street, a man walked up from behind and grabbed Cecil by his chain. Cecil was then stabbed to this throat and produced dead on arrival at the New Amsterdam hospital on Sunday morning after no one answered to calls at the Port Mourant Hospital.
