Keron Taylor, who was charged with the 2015 murder of 22-year-old Senassie Lewis, was this morning freed after Justice Navindra Singh upheld a no-case submission by his lawyer, Nigel Hughes.
Taylor appeared at the High Court in Georgetown and pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on September 04, 2015, he murdered Lewis.
When Taylor’s trial commenced this morning, the main witness, Troy Abrams, said he could not remember what had transpired. As a result, Hughes made a no-case submission, which was upheld by Justice Singh, who then directed the jury to return a formal verdict of not guilty.
Taylor, also known as ‘Layrow’ of Charlestown, Georgetown, along with Clive Forde, called ‘El Sinkie,’ was committed to stand trial for the murder of Lewis, formerly a resident of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, who was gunned down in front of the Ghetto Flex nightspot in Albouystown, Georgetown.
Forde, who had escaped from the Lusignan Prison, was however shot and killed in July 2017 following a confrontation with Joint Services.
Joint Services had received information that the prison escapee was hiding out in a house in East Ruimveldt, Georgetown and surrounded the house. Forde attempted to flee and was shot dead during the process.
A 9mm pistol with live rounds was found a short distance away from where his body fell.
