Man acquitted of 2002 murder
A judge on Monday directed a jury to acquit a man accused of a murder that occurred nine years ago.
Prosecutors alleged that Arthur Carey was responsible for the September 17, 2002 shooting death of Desmond Storr at West Street.
Prosecutor Ambrose Brown was forced to close his case without the testimony of a key witness, who did not appear for trial.
Presiding Justice Roy Jones refused to allow Brown to enter the witness’ previous statements into evidence.
As a result, Carey was acquitted on orders of the judge.
Jerone Roberts represented Carey.
