Published:Monday | December 1, 2014 | 12:51 PM

Reputed leader of the Rose Town-based Discipline Gang, Uriel James, was this morning remanded into custody as there was confusion about the status of his bail.

The court was informed by defence attorneys that James is on bail in relation to two of the three murder cases against him.

However, the prosecution indicated that its records show that he was granted bail in only one matter.

Senior puisne judge Gloria Smith then ordered that James be remanded until his bail status can be ascertained.

James is charged jointed with Shamari Morgan and Rushane Bygrave for the 2011 murder of James Anderson.

Morgan is out on bail while Bygrave is yet to take up his bail offer.

Meanwhile, the reputed gang leader is charged with the 2004 murder of Sean James as well as the death of a man in 1999.

The reputed gang leader was taken into custody in March last year, after the police held him with what they said was a list of witnesses in several criminal cases against him.

At the time of his arrest, James was on bail for charges of murder and shooting with intent.

The police say during a search of his premises in March last year, large sums of money and financial documents were also seized.
