A man suspected of being involved in a murder in St. John’s last summer has been granted bail at Newfoundland Supreme Court.
Jonathan Eugene Rowe, 29, was arrested April 12, nine months after Nick Winsor was shot dead in a home on Portugal Cove Road in the capital city's east end.
He's charged with being an accessory to murder. His bail conditions include a $5,000 cash deposit and orders that he obey strict conditions.
Two other men, Philip Wayne Pynn, 25, and Lyndon Malcolm Butler, 22, were arrested days after the incident, and charged jointly with second-degree murder and attempted murder.
They also face other charges, including possession of a dangerous weapon, assault with a weapon and attempted robbery.
Pynn is also charged with pointing a firearm, breach of probation and two breaches of recognizance.
Pynn is still in custody, while Butler was granted bail in March on strict conditions.
The preliminary inquiry for Pynn and Butler is set to begin June 28 at provincial court in St. John's.
Rowe's preliminary inquiry is scheduled for Sept. 24-Oct. 5, also at provincial court.
The inquiries will determine whether or not there is enough evidence to bring the cases to trial.
