Local Red Cross President remanded to prison until Acting Chief Magistrate decides whether to grant him bail

While information is still sketchy as to what instigated a conflict between an unnamed woman and Elvis Murray Watkins, the President of the Antigua and Barbuda Red Cross, he will be spending the next 10 days at Her Majesty’s Prison.

Murray Watkins appeared in the St. John’s Magistrates Court on Monday morning, March 28, and was remanded to prison by Acting Chief Magistrate Dexter Wason.

He will remain at the penal facility until April 6, at which time Wason will review his matter and decide whether to grant bail.

Allegations are that he and the female were in an altercation during which he used his fist on her.  

The matter was reported to the Police and Murray Watkins was taken into custody and now faces serious charges.
