Murder accused Miguel McLean

Police have charged two people, including a teenager, with a recent double murder. One of the victims was kidnapped and used to lure the other victim out of his home.

Miguel Mc Clean, also known as One Eye or Bad Eye, 26, of East Dry River, Port-of-Spain, and the 17-year-old from Laventille, who can not be named as he is minor, appeared before acting Chief Magistrate Maria Busby-Earle-Caddle in the Port-of-Spain Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

The duo was charged with murdering Trevvon Wilson and Tiba Thomas on August 8, kidnapping, burglary and three offences of common assault.

Both men were remanded in custody and ordered to reappear in court on September 18.

According to police reports, around 4 am, 21-year-old Wilson was at his Olton Road, Gonzales home when masked gunmen grabbed him and forced him up to Thomas’ house and made him call out to his neighbour.

When Thomas, 36, responded he saw the gunmen and attempted to close the door and run, but the men pushed it open and killed him. They then killed Wilson.

Both men were shot in their heads.

Mc Clean and the teenager were charged by Sgt Roger Reyes of the Region One Homicide Bureau.
