Sedley Liverpool called ‘Birdman’

A MIXED 12-member jury was, on Tuesday, empanelled before Justice Brassington Reynolds at the Demerara High Court for the trial of Sedley Liverpool, who allegedly shot and killed a Nelson Street, Mocha Arcadia, East Bank Demerara mechanic.

Liverpool, called “Birdman”, denied that, on June 1, 2015, at Nelson Street, Mocha Arcadia, EBD, he murdered 23-year-old Terrence Lanferman.

He is being represented by attorney-at-law Ravindra Mohabir, while the state’s case will be presented by prosecutors Lisa Cave and Taneisha Saygon.

The trial is expected to commence on January 24 and a total of 15 witnesses are slated to testify.

Liverpool’s cousin, Kenkassie Lynch was also charged for the capital offence of murder for his role in the crime. In 2019, he was tried before Justice Navindra Singh and was sentenced to serve 75 years after a jury found him guilty of the crime.

The Guyana Chronicle understands that the shooting stemmed from a feud between the accused and Lanferman, but Lynch reportedly admitted that he alone carried out the shooting.

On the day in question, Lynch allegedly returned to Mocha and met his cousin, after which he visited Nelson Street to conduct surveillance on Lanferman’s house.

Lynch then returned to Liverpool’s house, and at around 19:00 hours, Liverpool allegedly gave him a handgun. The two headed back to Nelson Street on a ‘CG’ motorcycle.

While Liverpool waited in a nearby street, Lynch allegedly went to Lanferman’s residence and knocked on the front door.

Lanferman opened his front door to greet his visitor, only to be confronted by a gunman.
