The Public Defender’s Office is representing a convicted murderer at his appeal.

Deiondre Demeritte was sentenced to 58 years in prison in 2018 for the April 2016 murder of Calvin Thompson, who was shot dead inside a car off Carmichael Road.

Demeritte was allegedly catching a ride with Thompson when he was killed.

Public defender Stanley Rolle accepted the brief yesterday.

The appeal has been adjourned to February 3.
