He appeared before Chief Magistrate Sonya Young at the Serious Offences Court yesterday.

The prosecution, led by Prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche, called ballistic expert Sergeant Julian Caine to the stand, to give expert testimony.

Caine told the court that the weapon, which is designed for killing, has a maximum shooting distance of 50 metres and can amputate a human leg or arm on impact.

Three more prosecution witnesses are expected to be called in the matter.

However, Gill must report to the Georgetown Police Station on Mondays and Fridays. The matter continues on March 7, 2012.(KW)
