The mother of the late Abijah Holder-Phillips, who was charged last week with causing his death by dangerous driving, remains on $7,500 bail.
Felisha Osula Holder, 33, of Hopefield, Christ Church, made her second appearance in court on yesterday – this time before Magistrate Laurie-Ann Smith-Bovell in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court.
The accused mother was not required to plead to the charge that around 4:15 p.m. on June 26, 2015, she allegedly caused her son’s death “by driving a motorcar along the Adams Section of the ABC Highway in a manner dangerous to the public, having regards to all the circumstances, including the nature, condition and users of the road and the amount of traffic that was actually . . . or expected on the road at the time”.
Eleven-year-old Abijah was on his way home from his primary school’s graduation when he met his untimely death.
His 13-year-old sister Ibrel, who was also a passenger in the vehicle driven by her mother, survived the crash, which occurred at the entrance of the Villages at Coverley.
The case against the accused, who is being represented by Queens Counsel Elliott Mottley, continues on June 11.
