Court matter involving Sandiford-Garner delayed
The trial against two men accused of robbing a Government senator of a cellular phone in October 2011, was set to continue in Supreme Court No. 5 this morning before Justice Olson Alleyne.
However, a juror was ill and the matter could not do so.
Last week, Justice Alleyne was ill and therefore off from work.
Reneko Jamal Taylor, 22, of Block 5F Division Drive, Eden Lodge, St Michael, and Jermaine Julia Andre Worrell, 23, of Hinds Hill, Cave Hill, St. Michael are accused of robbing Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner of a $1 000 cellular phone on October 12, 2011. Worrell faces an additional count of unlawful wounding.
Principal Crown Counsel Elwood Watts is prosecuting the matter in which Taylor is being represented by attorneys-at-law Marlon Gordon and Saffiya Moore, while Kendrid Sargeant is appearing for accused Worrell.
The case, which is being heard by a jury of seven women and two men, should continue on Monday.
