Frank Henry, 39, and his wife, Josephine Henry, 41, along with their family friend Trevor Abrams, 41, are accused of murdering Williams on July 22, 2015 at Friendship, Canal, Lower Pomeroon, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).

When the trio appeared in court on Wednesday, Magistrate McGusty announced a prima facie case had been made out against them, thus they were committed to stand trial in the High Court.

The body of Williams was found about a mile away from a wedding house at Friendship with wounds to his forehead and his leg.

Reports are that Abrams and Williams had an altercation during which he was dealt the blows which ended his life. However, the Henrys were both charged as Abrams was at the time living with them.
