In July 2018, the teenager and 23-year-old Andre Hines were charged with the murder of Lorenzo Thomas, otherwise called ‘Israel' or ‘Trulups', in Cassava Piece, St Andrew. Prosecutors reported that on June 5, 2018, men carrying guns, machetes, and gasoline, invaded Mr. Thomas' home. He was shot, beheaded, and his body set ablaze.

The duo was also charged with conspiracy to murder, arson, shooting with intent and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

The teen had also been accused of giving his co-accused, Hinds, an order to behead Thomas. Reports were that a witness statement given to the police had alleged that Mavado's son gave the instruction.

“Memba di boss want him head,” the juvenile allegedly said to Hinds.
