Convicted murderer Kofhe Goodman’s appeal was struck off the court’s calendar yesterday.
Goodman, who is serving a 55-year sentence for the 2013 murder of 11-year-old Marco Archer, appeared before the Court of Appeal via Zoom.
The matter was scheduled for hearing, but public defender Stanley Rolle asked for additional time to get the transcript of defense attorney Wayne Munroe, QC’s, address to the jury to complete his submissions.
However, Director of Public Prosecutions Garvin Gaskin objected to the adjournment.
Gaskin pointed out to the justices of appeal, Sir Michael Barnett, Jon Isaacs and Roy Jones, that the appeal was not properly put before the court.
Gaskin submitted that although Goodman’s appeal was filed past the required deadline, there was no extension of time before the court.
The court agreed and removed the matter from its calendar.
However, the matter can be re-listed once his lawyer makes the necessary extension of time application.
Cordell Frazier appeared along with Gaskin.
