CaribWorldNews, NASSAU, Bahamas, Tues. Sept. 22, 2009: Actor John Travolta is in the Bahamas and is prepared to testify today in an extortion case linked to his 16-year-old son`s death.
People Magazine cited sources as saying the actor is staying at an exclusive gated community west of Nassau and is prepared to be called as the first witness in the case today, related to the death of his son Jett Travolta.
Supreme Court Judge Anita Allen yesterday swore in the six-woman, three-man jury ahead of today`s trial.
Paramedic Tarino Lightbourn and his attorney, former Bahamian Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, are accused of conspiring to extort $25 million from Travolta for a document relating to Jett Travolta`s treatment.
Jett Travolta died last January in the Bahamas after suffering a seizure at the actor`s vacation home on the island of Grand Bahama. John Travolta is on a witness list of 14.
