Choc gets $6,000 bail for strangling naked, bound Abdush Salam

Twenty-four year old Juan Choc, a construction worker, was charged with manslaughter for the death of 29 year old Bangladeshi businessman Abdush Salam. Choc was committed to stand trial in the April session of the Supreme Court after a preliminary inquiry was held today by Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford. Choc, originally from Jordan Village in  Toledo, was released on a bail of $6,000. On July 1, 2017, Salam was found dead in his apartment on Orange Street. He was lying nude on his bed with his face down. His hands were tied behind his back with a belt. The bed was sunk in the middle. A post-mortem examination revealed that he died from manual strangulation. Choc was not represented by any attorney.
