The Two defendants, Alpha Bah and Abu Sackor who are both residents of the West Point  Community, were on July 20, 2016 arrested by the Liberia National Police (LNP) based upon a complaint filed by some witnesses alleging that the two defendants along with some friends stabbed victim Kabbah to death at Miami Beach where they had gone to have fun.

They were on Monday, August 1 arraigned before the City Court to answer to the charges levied against them.
