Murder accused Quada granted $500,000 bail



Dancehall entertainer Quada, whose given name is Shauguelle Clarke, has been offered bail in the sum of $500,000. 

After three days behind bars, Clarke and his legal team appeared before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Friday morning. He was represented by attorneys-at-law Stacy Knight and Bianca Samuels.

The artiste was ordered to surrender his travel documents as part of the conditions to his bail. He returns to court on January 27th, his attorney at law Bert Samuels told Loop News reporter Claude Mills. 

Clarke turned himself into the police accompanied by Samuels  on Tuesday, January 14.

He was arrested and charged by detectives at the Constant Spring Police in St. Andrew for last year's murder of 30-year-old Miguel Williams in Sterling Castle Heights, St Andrew.

Reports from the Jamaica Constabulary Force are that about 3.45 pm, Williams was allegedly beaten, set ablaze and his house torched by Clarke and others.

The entertainer, who is signed to PopCaan’s Unruly Camp, joined 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, a mentally-challenged man in retaliation, an act that also provoked national outrage.
