Fredericks, of 12 Independence Street, La Grange, had been jointly charged with a juvenile for the murder of Bonus, whose body was discovered on June 8, 2011 dumped in a gully in the backlands of the old airstrip at Linden. Post-mortem results revealed that he died of haemorrhaging, which resulted from two gunshot wounds to the head.

State Counsel Siand Dhurjon in association with Shawnette Austin is leading the prosecution, while attorneys Lawrence Harris and Hewley Griffith are appearing for Fredericks.
