An 18 year-old Jamaican accused of killing a 12 year-old boy in Connecticut in the United States remains behind bars after bail was set at US$1 million when he appeared in court Thursday.
Tajay Chambers was arrested last week and charged with murder in the death of Clinton Howell.
Howell was shot to death outside his Bridgeport home on December 18.
Chambers is one of four people arrested in connection to the crime.
Chambers is due back in court on January 8.
If convicted of murder with special circumstances, Chambers could be sentenced to life without the possibility of release.
He reportedly left Jamaica to join his family in Bridgeport, Connecticut, 18 months ago.
