A psychiatrist has formally declared that Delano Forbes is of sound enough mind to stand trial for the crimes he is accused of committing.
The 27-year-old ‘vampire killer’ was accused of committing at least four murders between 2017 and 2018.
Forbes has spent years behind bars after being charged with killing Wilfred “Bongo” Williams in Swetes in December 2017, Shawn Henry in Point in May 2017, Lisue Williams on All Saints Road in 2017, as well as Maurison Thomas in All Saints in 2018.
According to the latest psychiatrist’s report, Forbes is not mentally ill – contrary to what his family believes. However, his lawyer Sherfield Bowen has requested that the doctor be cross-examined by him. Justice Ann-Marie Smith set May 16 as the day for that line of questioning to take place.
When Forbes was first apprehended, police found two bottles of what appeared to be blood at his residence.
In May 2021, Forbes was arraigned for the murders of Williams and Thomas before Justice Ann-Marie Smith – charges to which he pleaded not guilty. He denied the other two killings.
