Witness murder case heads to Privy Council

A woman convicted of setting up the murder of a witness received conditional leave to appeal to the Privy Council.

Caryn Moss was convicted in 2018 of conspiring with others to murder 30-year-old Oneil Marshall prior to his testimony in an abetment-to-murder trial.

Marshall’s bullet-riddled and partially burned body was found in the parking lot of an abandoned grocery store on Market Street on May 1, 2016.

Moss told police that on numerous occasions, from December 2015 up to the day of the murder, she was approached by three separate men who offered her $200,000 if she would betray Marshall, who was supposed to be in protective custody.

Moss eventually lured Marshall out and left him in a car with the child safety locks engaged, through Yorkshire Street, before she heard multiple gunshots.

She was initially sentenced to 19 years in prison but the Court of Appeal last year increased the sentence to 35 years.

T’Shura Ambrose appeared for the Office of the DPP and Crystal Rolle, of Ducille and Co., appeared for Moss.
