According to police, Wright was sitting in the yard of his cousin’s house. The cousin is a shopkeeper.

Two men posing as customers asked for cigarettes and rum, but the cousin said it was sold out. The duo left but returned a short time later armed with a gun and opened fire, hitting Wright several times.

He died later in hospital. His cousin was also injured.

Now the alleged perpetrator Kimani Alcott is seeking release on bail. The judge ruled that further information was required from the prosecution.

“Mr. Alcott, a bail application cannot be made at this time as your lawyer does not have the information he requires and there is some additional information that the prosecution requires… You will remain in custody until September 4th” the judge told the suspect, according to the Jamaica Observer.

Wright was the first of two Canadians murdered in Jamaica in January 2021.

Woman found stabbed

Just over a week after Wright was shot, 43-year-old Markham event planner Latoya Alcindor was found stabbed to death at a Runaway Bay apartment complex on January 18, 2021.

Police say Alcindor traveled to Jamaica on December 27, 2020, met the man now accused of killing her and began a relationship with him. Her body was later found in her apartment.

Taxi driver Rogen Theomar Hylton, 34, is charged with murder.
