The trial of security guard Rohan “Early B” Rose who is charged in connection with the murder of Jamaican social media influencer Aneka “Slickianna” Townsend failed to get off the ground on Monday.
According to a report by the Jamaica Observer, the matter was called in the St James Circuit Court, however the crown told the court that the matter could not be dealt with today.
A mention date was later set by Justice Andrea Thomas for April 26.
The 47-year-old security guard is charged with misprision of a felony.
Which means he is accused of knowing about the matter but failed to notify the authorities. Rose is currently on bail.
His co-accused, Rushawn Patterson, was charged by the police with murder.
Patterson is accused of strangling her to death.
“On October 21. Townsend’s scantily clad body was retrieved from the sea in Reading, between St James and Hanover.
According to the police, Townsend had travelled from Kingston to Montego Bay where she was picked up by Patterson at approximately 7:30 pm on October 20.
They visited a restaurant in Hanover and a guest house in St James.
During the night, an argument reportedly developed between them, which resulted in Patterson reportedly strangling Townsend and disposing of her body.”
