Crown appeals directed acquittal
The Crown has appealed a judge’s decision to acquit a man accused of attempting to conceal a murder.
Last year, Justice Carolita Bethell directed the jury to acquit Randi Bain on charges of attempted arson and accessory after the fact.
Prosecutors alleged Bain torched a Nissan Primera in the parking lot of the former City Markets in an attempt to destroy evidence of the May 1, 2016 murder of O’ Neil Marshall.
Marshall’s bullet-riddled body was found in a burning car in the parking lot of the former City Markets on Market Street.
A policeman claimed he saw Moss leaving the scene and, when arrested, he had burn marks on his hands.
The appeal was yesterday set for March 12.
T’shura Ambrose and Al-Leecia Delancy represent the Crown. Bernard Ferguson represents Bain.
