Jury discharged in murder trial
The trial of Dwight Jones, the suspect accused of murdering a man in a drive-by shooting in 2017, was yesterday aborted and the jury discharged without hearing any evidence.
Senior Justice Vera Watkins dismissed the jury after hearing submissions in the jury’s absence after it was impaneled last Monday.
Jones, who is on remand, is accused of the February 7 murder of Benjamin Anderson at Ida Street.
Jones was jointly charged with Francisco Faubert, but the director of public prosecutions (DPP) discontinued the matter against him.
Jones is represented by public defenders Stanley Rolle and Marianne Cadet.
Patrick Sweeting appeared for the DPP.
