Five days after the fatal stabbing that claimed the life of Kanye Ford, 16, a 19-year-old man was today formally charged with the murder committed at Horseshoe Bay on Friday (Sept 9).

Eze Hart, of Southampton, was not required to enter a plea to the indictable offence, which will go before a Supreme Court judge and jury.

The case was set down for mention during the October arraignment session on October 3 by Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson, who remanded the accused in custody pending his next court appearance.
