A pastry chef appeared in the Magistrate’s Court on Monday, accused of stabbing Cable Bahamas Manager Marcus Hinsbey to death in his apartment at the gated community Venito Condominium nearly three weeks ago.
31-year-old Felicia Bonimy, the owner of Sweet Indulgence 242, was supported by her mother and sister as she stood before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson Pratt to face the murder charge.
After the charge was read, Bonimy was hugged by relatives and was whisked away to the Bahamas Department of Corrections until her lawyer Ryszard Humes applies for bail in the Supreme Court.
She returns to court on December 13.
Bonimy has become popular for her sweet pastries and decorative cakes.
The prosecutor has not revealed how Bonimy knew 60-year-old Hinsbey but investigators suggested that she took his keys and locked the door of his apartment after the crime.
The details revealed in Hinsbey’s death are graphic. He appeared to have been killed by a sharp object. He suffered a slit to the throat while his intestines hung out of his body in the bedroom of his Venito home. Defense wounds were also in his hands, which indicated Hinsbey may have fended off his attacker.
Police were alerted when Hinsbey did not show up for work. They then breached the condominium and found his body inside which may have been there for 24 hours.
