Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) – Judge Releases Deaf-Mute: Damion Cargill, one of the three inmates charged in connection with the fatal beating of Mario Deane in 2014 has been released from police custody and into the care of his relatives.

The guardianship order was made by Justice Vivienne Harris on Friday when the matter was mentioned in the St. James Circuit Court.

Cargill was found unfit to plea on March 20 in the St. James Circuit Court by a seven-member jury.

Judge Releases Deaf-Mute: Justice Harris had the option to send Cargill, who is a deaf-mute and schizophrenic, to a State facility but she chose to release him in the care of his family with supervised care. Her decision to release him in the care of family members was made under the 7th schedule of Section 25C of the Criminal Justice Administration Act.

His attorney Franklyn Haliburton says the court also ordered that Cargill receives treatment at the Cornwall Regional Hospital.

The Probation Office is also to submit a report to the Registrar of the Supreme Court in another year on Cargill’s upkeep and medical treatment.

Meanwhile, a pre-existing matter that had caused Cargill to end up in custody was transferred from the Parish Court to the Circuit Court and will be called up in the High Court on September 18.

The two other men in Deane’s case – Marvin Orr and Adrian Morgan are also expected to make an appearance before the High Court on September 18.

Cargill, Orr, and Morgan are charged in relation to Mario Deane’s death on April 6, 2014, following a beating Deane sustained at the Barnett Street lock-up three days earlier.

The 31-year-old Deane, who was arrested for possession of a small amount of ganja and was awaiting bail, suffered injuries all over his body and was transported to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where he died three days later.
