Dancehall artiste Quada’s attorney-at-law, Bert Samuels says his client remains in good spirits despite his recent detention on murder and arson charges.
“No court date has been decided as yet, we’re not sure if that will happen. We’re going to apply for bail and whether or not that is granted is up to the judge. He is confident in his attorney and the justice system, that’s why he went in with his lawyer voluntarily,” Samuels told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.
The artiste, whose real name is Shacquelle Clarke, was charged Wednesday for the April 17, 2019 murder of 30-year-old Miguel Williams in Sterling Castle Heights, St Andrew.
Reports are that about at 3.45 pm, Williams was allegedly beaten, set ablaze and his house torched by Clarke and others.
Clarke joins fellow accused 30-year-old Andrew Breakcliffe, otherwise called ‘Grinch’, of a Sterling Castle Heights address, who was also charged with murder and arson in December 2019.
Williams was killed in the aftermath of the tragic killing of Red Hills Primary school student, Shantae Skyers who went missing for five days before her decomposing body was found in a section of the community known as Blue Hole.
Her death ignited public outrage and angry citizens killed Williams, an innocent mentally-challenged man in retaliation, an act that also provoked national outcry.
With over 113,000 subscribers on his VEVO, Quada is known for singles such as Hail, Tint, Reflex and Celebration featuring Jah Vinci.
