Bert Samuels is quoted as saying that the bail application will continue on July 31. He stated that no ruling has yet been made by the judge.

Samuels started the bail application last month, and argued that his client was a fit candidate for bail, urging the court to release him on bond.

He said he remains confident that bail will eventually be granted.

"The young man is not being housed with adult prisoners, he is being held at Metcalfe (Street), so he is safe," said Samuels.

Mavado's son and 23-year-old Andre Hines were charged over a month ago with the murder of Lorenzo Thomas in Cassava Piece, St Andrew.

Prosecutors have alleged that on June 5, men armed with guns, machetes and gasoline invaded Thomas' home in the community, where he was shot and virtually beheaded before his body was set ablaze.

The police said the teen and Hines were part of the group of invaders.
