Man Arraigned for Murder of Father

The suspect is believed to suffer from a psychiatric disorder; lawyer asks for evaluation

A 24-year-old man was arraigned in the Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, charged with the murder of his father.

A soft-spoken Selwyen Seymour faced Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson Pratt for murder charges for intentionally and unlawfully causing the death of Dwight Ricardo Seymour.

On Monday, police were alerted to a body found buried about 50 feet in a shallow grave, in a yard, in #1 Gardens Hills.

Police confirmed they had a male relative in custody, in relation to the matter.

Younger Seymour was not required to enter a plea.

His attorney Ian Cargill requested that Seymour be remanded to the Sandilands Rehabilitation Center for a psychological evaluation.

But Magistrate Ferguson-Pratt denied the request stating that a moratorium on the Sandilands Rehabilitation Center due to the coronavirus pandemic, prevents Seymour from seeing a psychiatrist.

She said as soon as it becomes practical, she will allow Seymour a psychological evaluation.

One family member sat in the Magistrate’s Court to hear the charges read against Seymour.

Seymour returns to court on May 27th at 12 noon.
