Kerry Cromwell, the man who was charged with the murder of Linden bus driver Elvin Lorrimer, was this afternoon found guilty of the crime following a unanimous verdict by a 12-person jury.

On March 21, 2016, Cromwell murdered 53-year-old Lorrimer of Carter Street, Kara Kara, Linden. According to reports, Lorrimer was standing on the Linden bus park in Georgetown when he was shot and killed.

Sentencing for Cromwell has been deferred until Thursday, June 20 for the presentation of a probation report.

Upon his arraignment, Cromwell had pleaded not guilty to a murder indictment presented by State Prosecutors Abigail Gibbs, Tuanna Hardy, and Teriq Mohamed. The murder accused was represented by attorney-at-law Stanley Moore. This trial was heard before Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court in Demerara.

According to reports, Cromwell was one of the prisoners who broke out of the Lusignan Prison in July 2017. Before then, he was charged for possession of narcotics and was sentenced to serve community service. He was also slapped with several armed robbery charges.
