The First District Court remanded a fifty-three-year-old construction worker in custody until February 8, when he appeared for a bail hearing on a charge of murder arising from the death of his 70-year-old mother.

Police charged Lenny Augustin with the woman’s death on Tuesday, the same day he appeared before the court.

On Friday, December 31, 2021, around 10:30 pm, officers attached to the Anse La Raye Police Station responded to a report of a homicide at Blackstone, Jacmel, and found Florence Augustin unresponsive.

Officers arrested her son shortly afterwards.

  1. No one knows what he was going through. Why or how would a sane man strangle his bearer, his mother, the first to love him. I think the media should fish out some more details on the day to day environment in this case.

  2. I would not be surprise if hs lawyers plea for insanity eventually. All those who commit unbelievable crimes are insane. I have no faith in the justice system anymore. The way people lives are taken away and for someone(lawyer) to argue insanity in most cases is killing me inside. Anyway, let me don’t jump to conclusions in this case.

  3. All these Remand and Bail Hearing makes no Sense to me .He Should be delt with on the Spot .The Doctors Should have performed Two Autopsy his was suppose to be tge Second one .Ignorant fool
