Murder suspect gets probation for assault on girlfriend

Nassau, BAHAMAS-A man on bail for murder has been placed on probation for assaulting his girlfriend.

Jadre Evans, 24, of Kemp Road, hit the woman on April 18 after she sent him a break-up text.

Evans pleaded guilty to the assault charge at his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.

McKinney sentenced him to a year of probation. A breach of probation will result in a fine of $500 or three months.

Police arrested Evans earlier this month for allegedly threatening to kill the same woman after she cut up his clothing during a domestic dispute.

However, she dropped the case.

Evans, whose street name is Mice, is on bail for the 2016 murder of Stephen Horton.

Prosecutors allege that Evans gunned down the high school student as he walked in Flamingo Gardens.
