Cop charged w/ schoolboy killing further remanded

Quancy John, the policeman charged with killing Patentia schoolboy Kelvin Fraser, made his second court appearance at the Wales Magistrates’ Court yesterday and was further remanded until August 5.

On June 29, John was charged with the capital offence and was remanded to prison by acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson.

The institution of the charge against the rank has ended weeks of public outcry for him to be charged. Two protests were held at the Wales Police Station and in Georgetown to demand that justice be done.

Fraser’s post-mortem examination found that he died of shock and haemorrhage from laceration of the lungs caused by gunshot injuries.

The teenager was shot in the left side of his chest at close range and several pellets were retrieved from his body.
