Guard charged with May Day murder
A security guard was yesterday remanded after he appeared before a city court to face a murder charge stemming from a fatal confrontation with a labourer, who police say stole from him.
Fifty-three-year-old Kelvin Chisholm, of 5 Water Street, Kingston, was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that he, on May 1, murdered 34-year-old Nigel Lawson of Camp Street.
According to Prosecutor Bharat Mangru, Chisholm is a security guard employed at a private residence in South Cummingsburg while Lawson did odd jobs in the area. At about 7:45 PM on May 1, Chisholm confronted Lawson on Quamina Street about a missing cellphone and an iPod.
