A woman convicted of plotting to have a witness murdered was yesterday refused bail pending appeal.
Caryn Moss, 27, returns to the Court of Appeal on April 8 for challenge of her conspiracy to commit murder conviction. The Crown’s appeal against her lenient sentence will also be heard on that date.
Moss was sentenced to 19 years for her role in luring O’Neil Marshall to his death.
Marshall, who had been in the witness protection program, was shot multiple times after she lured him from his home on April 30, 2016.
Marshall’s bullet-riddled body was found in a smoldering Nissan Primera in the parking lot of the former City Market on Market Street in the wee hours of the morning on May 1, 2016.
Moss appeared disappointed that the court did not approve her release.
In her application for release, Moss’ lawyer, Krysta Mason-Smith, argued that the appeal had a strong prospect of success because she was charged alone and it’s impossible to conspire by yourself. Mason-Smith also claimed that Moss was not a willing participant in the plan and acted under duress.
However, the appeal panel of Justices of Appeal Stella Crane-Scott, Roy Jones and Milton Evans (acting) did not agree.
As a result, they did not require prosecutors T’shura Ambrose and Al-leecia Delancy to respond.
