St. George -- A second body has been recovered following the boating accident which occurred late on Sunday afternoon after a small craft departed Levera beach with 11 persons on board for Carriacou.

A male body was found at around 11:30am on Friday on Green Island, a short distance off the north east coastline of Grenada; but has not yet been positively identified.

A 15 year old, the lone female in the group, was found on a beach at the north end of Grenada within 24 hours of the accident.  An autopsy report revealed that Shonte Charles died as a result of asphyxia by drowning.

On Friday, the captain of the craft, Kimei Richardson, was charged with manslaughter by negligence and is due back in court on February 24.
