Four police officers have been arrested and charged in the 2011 death of Toronto resident Oscar Bartholomew in Grenada, according to local media.
Bartholomew died after allegedly being beaten into a coma on Boxing Day 2011 while he was in a jail cell in the hamlet of St. David’s.
Five officers were initially charged with manslaughter following the incident. The charges were dropped in 2013 when a judge ruled that a coroner’s inquest was necessary before the criminal case could proceed.
After a probe spanning several years, four of the five officers initially accused were arrested on Friday, MTV News Grenada reports. They are all facing charges of manslaughter.
