Campus Trendz trial stalled
When the trial against Jamar Dewayne Bynoe ended last Friday, the accused had asked to have an attorney in court to appear amicus curie (as a friend of the court) in the matter.
The presiding judge, Justice Michelle Weekes, took the request into consideration and gave him the weekend to find such an attorney.
However, when the case came up today, there was no attorney present to represent Bynoe, who has been arguing his own case for the past two weeks.
Today, no further evidence was heard, but the accused killer was given until Wednesday morning to find himself an attorney.
The accused, of Headley’s Land, Bank Hall, St Michael is standing trial for the September 3, 2010 murder of six young women – Shanna Griffith, Kelly-Ann Welch, Pearl Cornelius, Kellishaw Olivierre, Nikita Belgrave and Tiffany Harding – who all perished in the well-publicised fire at the Campus Trendz store on Tudor Street, The City.
Principal Crown Counsel Alliston Seale is prosecuting the case in the No. 2 Supreme Court.
