Two men charged with murdering Sven Connor

| 23/01/2024

(CNS) UPDATED: Antascio Rankin (29) from George Town and Roland Welcome (33) from East End have been charged with the murder of Sven Brett Connor (42). Connor was shot multiple times at his home in East End off Sea View Road on the night of 7 December 2023. While police have not provided any details of the case, it appears they were both on the run from the police at the time Connor was killed.

It is not clear when the two murder suspects were arrested and charged in connection with the murder, but a public bulletin was released on 28 December stating that the men were wanted for burglary offences.

Rankin turned himself in that same day, but Welcome remained on the run until he was arrested on 6 January during an operation in Bodden Town. The police said he resisted arrest, and they had to use force on the fugitive, who was checked by medics at the detention centre. He was arrested at that time on suspicion of aggravated burglary in East End in November.

Rankin was due to appear in court on Tuesday, but Welcome remains on remand at HMP Northward in relation to the other offences.

At the time he was gunned down, Connor, who was well known to police, was on bail in relation to charges of assault. He had pleaded not guilty to ABH and threats to kill in regard to a violent encounter with a woman at the site of the former Margaritaville Hotel on the West Bay Road in September.

The police have not offered any details on why Connor was killed.
