One man walks free in murder trial


Keshorn Ellis did not stick around the Serious Offences Court after a no case submission was upheld, resulting in him walking free of the murder of Redemption Sharpes resident Horsand Glasgow.{{more}}

Ellis, 21, was jointly charged, along with his brother Chad Ellis, 19, both of Lowmans Windward, Donrick Richards, 22, of Richland Park and Imo Miller, 26, of Barrouallie, for Glasgow’s murder, which occurred on November 1, 2013, in Canouan.

When the prosecution closed its case on Monday, March 10, Ellis’ lawyer, Israel Bruce, indicated to the court that he would enter a no case submission on behalf of his client.

When the matter was called back up for hearing on Thursday, March 13, senior prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche informed the court that following discussions with the defense, he conceded that they did not have a case against Keshorn.

Following the decision by Chief Magistrate Sonya Young to uphold the no case submission, Bruce told SEARCHLIGHT that he knew then that the situation was much better for Keshorn than for his brother, Chad.

“It is an indication that the justice system has been working and can work, once we apply ourselves properly. He is now in a position where he can move on with his life,” Bruce said.

At that stage, accused Imo Miller, who represented himself at the Preliminary Inquiry, made a no case submission, but that was overruled by the Chief Magistrate.

As a result, Miller, along with Chad Ellis and Donrick Richards were committed to the High Court to stand trial before a judge and jury for Glasgow’s murder.

Richards is represented by attorney Grant Connell.

According to reports, just before midnight on November 1 last year, Glasgow was asleep at his residence in a village called Balance, when he was allegedly attacked by two men, after being involved in an altercation earlier that day.

He died the following day.
