The Jamaica Defence Force soldier accused of killing four people at a Corporate Area nightclub more than a year ago was denied bail when he appeared in the Home Circuit Court yesterday.

Corporal Leslie 'Steve' Moodie, 22, is to return to court on April 21 when his trial will begin.

Supreme Court Judge Martin Gayle turned down Moodie's bail application.

Moodie is charged with four counts of murder arising from an incident at the Double Diamond Gaming Lounge, Washington Boulevard, St Andrew, on October 20, 2008.

He is charged with the murders of Ejon Peart, 20, sound-system operator of Greendale Drive, Kingston 19; Davian 'Don P' Kerr, 19; and Lynchmore Forbes, 24, both of Pembroke Hall; and William Wilberforce, 28, of Duhaney Drive, Kingston 20.

Allegations are that about 4:15 a.m. the men were at the club where Moodie and a female were allegedly having a conversation. The men intervened and shortly after, shots were heard. It was later discovered that they had been shot. Peart, Kerr and Wilberforce died on the spot. Forbes later succumbed to his injuries.
