A Corporate Area resident magistrate has revoked bail for a disc jockey accused of threatening the life of 66-year-old actor and comedian Oliver Samuels.

Twenty-nine-year-old Junior Sommerville is charged with extortion, threatening to commit murder, and larceny in which Samuels is the complainant.

When Sommerville appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey ordered that he be taken back into custody and return to court on July 29 when his case will again be mentioned.

Pusey revoked the $200,000 station bail after Samuels told the court that while he was off the island, Sommerville threatened members of his family.
