A school bus driver who allegedly tried to use a student to deliver a cake containing poison to the Vice Principal of the Montego Bay Community College, will face a committal hearing in July.
Fifty-six-year-old Norval Bulgin appeared before the St. James Parish Court on Monday, June 10 to face a charge of soliciting to murder.
Bulgin, who is employed as a bus driver at the Montego Bay Community College, was charged following allegations that he was plotting to poison the Vice Principal, Carol Walters.
It is alleged that on April 16 this year, he offered to pay a student a sum of money to deliver a cake containing poison to the vice principal.
Mr. Bulgin reportedly told the student that the Vice Principal wanted to fire him.
The student refused his request and contacted the school administration.
The police were informed and Bulgin was arrested and charged.
During Monday’s court hearing, presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small set the matter for committal hearing on July 5 after she was advised by the clerk-of-court that the matter was ready for committal hearing.
Bulgin’s bail was extended.
He is represented by attorney-at-law Oswest Senior-Smith.
