She was found in a lifeless state with her throat slit in her Summer Street, Nassau Village, Bahamas apartment just over a week ago.However, the accused will return to the Magistrate’s Court on October 24 for a presentation of a voluntary bill of indictment, which will facilitate the transfer of the case to the higher court.Before he was remanded to prison to await trial, his lawyer Nathan Smith made allegations that his client allegedly suffered significant injuries while in Police custody and as such, Chief Magistrate Forbes ordered that Williams be seen by a physician at the prison.It was reported that Bowen, who taught at the Charles Saunders High School, appeared to have been stabbed multiple times. At the time of the discovery, all the apartment doors were reportedly locked.Further investigations revealed that Bowen, who has a 16-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter, may have been slain shortly after 07:00h on September 9 since it was at around this time that “loud screams were heard in the community from the complex, after what was thought to be a domestic dispute inside.According to the report, no one called the Police. The Police went to check on the woman after she failed to show up at work. The owner of the apartment assisted the Police in gaining access to the locked premises and it was then, the discovery was made. The suspect was later apprehended.last_img read more
