The 15-year-old schoolboy accused of killing his 17-year-old Brown’s Town High schoolmate this month, will have to relocate from St Ann and possibly find a new school, following threats over the incident.

The boy appeared before the Brown’s Town Children's Court yesterday where his attorneys, Oswest Senior Smith and Ayanna Royes, successfully applied for bail.

Resident Magistrate, Paula-Ann Archer Hall also ordered that as part of the bail conditions, the boy relocate to another parish.

His lawyers say the order came after they informed the court that threats have been made against him. 

He is to return to court on December 1.

It’s being alleged that the boy stabbed Jamala Barnaby in self defence during a fight on October 8.

Meanwhile, the boy also learnt in court yesterday that his grandfather collapsed and died after hearing of the incident.
