St. Andrew resident found guilty of NON CAPITAL MURDER Featured

St. Andrew resident found guilty of NON CAPITAL MURDER

A sixty-four-year-old man from the village of De Blandeau in St Andrew found guilty on a charge of non-capital murder last Friday now awaits his fate.

 A twelve-member jury panel returned a unanimous verdict of guilty against the accused man Albert Alexis, based on the evidence that he was responsible for the death of another villager Alson Henry.  

Henry died after receiving two stab wounds to his stomach in May of 2015 following an altercation between himself and Henry close to a nightclub in the area.

According to information emanating from the court, both men were among other villagers at a nightclub enjoying a social drink when an argument ensued. 

Alexis in putting his case to the jury said at first the argument started over some provision he (Alexis) had brought for the owner of the night club but quickly took a turn to land ownership and who has and does not have rights to family lands.

Alexis told the court the argument went late into the night and eventually when he thought the dispute was over after the club had closed there was Henry at the foot of the steps waiting for him with something in his hand and using threatening language.

Alexis went on to say an altercation then ensued and Henry was stabbed in the process. He later succumbed to his injuries.

Friday’s unanimous verdict strongly suggests that the jurors, during their deliberation clearly did not accept any of the grounds advanced by the defense, which defense was based on self-defense, provocation or accidental death.

 Shortly after Friday’s verdict, defense counsel Anselm Clouden told members of the media that while he accepts the verdict, he is not happy and is, therefore, considering his option with a view of taking the matter to a different level. 

This he said would come following the sentencing phase of the proceeding, which is scheduled for July 25th.   

In the meantime, Alexis who now faces a maximum life in prison remains on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison until such time.
