–as PI into Norton St. taxi driver’s murder now set to conclude on Oct. 16, not Sept. 17
THE preliminary inquiry into the murder of Marlon Rodney, also known as ‘George’, who was killed during a dispute in April 2019, is now expected to come to conclude on October 16, 2020, and not on September 17, 2020, as previously reported.
On remand for Rodney’s murder are 26-year-old Osaffo Grundall, called “Curlup”, of Freeman Street, East La Penitence, and James Fraser, called “Damo”, of Garnett Street, Campbellville.
Particulars of the case allege that between April 25, 2019 and April 30, 2019, the pair murdered Rodney on Norton Street, Lodge.
Come October 16, when they appear before Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, it will be to know whether there is sufficient evidence for them to stand trial at the High Court, or be freed.
According to reports, Rodney, 35, a known taxi driver of Norton Street, Lodge was in a heated argument with the pair on the day in question, when one of them pulled a gun and fired several rounds at him, hitting him in the leg.
Though Rodney was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), he would later succumb.
