Thirty-four year old Keivon Scott was charged with the murder of Edmund John Flood in Magistrates’ Court.
The nephew of Education Minister, R Wayne Scott, was not required to enter a plea as the charge is indictable and must be read to him again in the Supreme Court.
It is alleged that Scott murdered Mr. Flood sometime between September 30 and October 2 this year.
Mr. Flood was found dead in his Paget home on October 2.
Scott was remanded into custody by Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo and ordered to reappear at the January 2017 arraignment session.
He is represented by Mark Pettingill.
