Goodman’s appeal delayed

Kofhe Goodman’s appeal against his 2017 conviction for the murder of 11-year-old Marco Archer has been delayed again.

Yesterday, public defender Stanley Rolle requested an adjournment to allow him to review the transcripts from Goodman’s first trial.

As a result, the appeal was reset for June 27.

At his second trial, Goodman, who is also known as Edwardo Ferguson, was sentenced to 55 years’ imprisonment in 2018 for the murder.

Marco was kidnapped and murdered in September 2011.

Police found the 11-year-old’s naked body dumped in bushes near Goodman’s home a week after he vanished while running an errand for his mother.

Goodman was first convicted of Marco’s murder in 2013 and sentenced to death.

The Court of Appeal, in 2016, quashed his death sentence and conviction after finding that pre-trial publicity and the conduct of his attorney made his trial unfair.
