AG’s Office drops 2 murder cases
Two murder cases that spent several years on the criminal docket will not proceed to trial.
Yesterday, Neil Brathwaite, chief counsel in the Office of the Attorney General, informed a Supreme Court judge of the office’s decision not to prosecute Jamal Knowles and Gladstone Greene.
Police arrested Knowles in July 2008 for the stabbing death of Antonious Brennen in Farmers Cay, Exuma. According to police, Brennen and another man got into an argument that escalated into a physical fight. The man allegedly stabbed Brennen in the chest and face.
Greene, 36, was charged with the shooting death of Mauriceo Davis on August 19, 2005. The case was committed to the Supreme Court in 2007. However, the case was never brought to trial.
Brathwaite also told the court that the armed robbery case of Charles Hall, which dates back to 2001, would not proceed. Brathwaite presented writs of nolle prosequi for each case.
All of the defendants appeared before Senior Supreme Court Justice Jon Isaacs.
