Arrest warrant issued for man charged with Dean Moriah's murder
A warrant has been issued in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court for Brandon Case, the man charged for the murder of tourism worker Dean Moriah.
Moriah was killed at his Bogue Village home in St James last year.
When the case came up for mention yesterday, presiding magistrate Carolyn Tie was informed by attorney-at-law Martyn Thomas that his client had absconded bail.
The magistrate then indicated that she would issue an arrest warrant.
Case had been on bail after being charged in connection with the August 29, 2013 stabbing death of Dean Moriah, who had worked in the tourism industry for approximately 20 years.
Moriah, who sustained stab wounds to his neck and chest, reportedly named his attacker before dying.
The house in which the attack took place was reportedly set ablaze by the killer.
Following investigations by the police, Case was arrested on September 16, 2013 after he was reportedly found with Moriah's motor vehicle in Oracabessa, St Mary.
