Carew and three others—Wayne Anthony, 66, Edgar Zephyrine, 75, and McEachrane, 65—all appeared before Chief Magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle on 49 various charges last week Monday at the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court.

McDonald was supposed to have appeared alongside the others but after being charged on August 11 she fell ill and was taken to the St Clair Medical Centre.
