A resident of Sandhill village is currently recovering at the BDF hospital after he was hit in the face with a stick on Saturday afternoon. When he is released, it may be into Police custody to face a charge of murder.

On Saturday around 2:00pm Ladyville Police were called out to Sandhill where in front of a residence they found Malcolm Leslie, 19, bleeding profusely from what appeared to be two stab wounds to the chest. Leslie was rushed to the BDF hospital and then to the KHMH where he was pronounced dead.

While on the highway Police also observed James Gibson walking near the Sandhill Police Station with an injury on his face. Gibson told them that he was at home when Leslie came there and they got involved in a verbal altercation.

According to Gibson, Leslie picked up a stick and hit him in his face. Gibson says that was when he grabbed a knife from his pants pocket and stabbed Leslie. Police sources say they have forwarded the information to the office of the DPP and await instruction on whether Gibson will be charged for murder or manslaughter.
