Murder accused opts to represent himself in court


Murder accused Veron Primus has opted to represent himself when he reappears before the Serious Offences Court for a Preliminary Inquiry into the murder of real estate agent Sharleen Greaves.{{more}}

This comes after the matter was adjourned on October 13, 2016, when Primus’ former lawyer, Michaela Ambrose, removed herself as his counsel.

According to Ambrose, she and Primus have had differences with regard to the management of his case; she also felt she had not been sufficiently briefed.

Primus is charged with the murder of Sharleen Greaves, who was found stabbed to death at her Bijou Real Estate office in Arnos Vale on November 13, 2015.

Greaves’ Suzuki Escudo was found abandoned in the Wilson Hill area and reports are that a search at Primus’ home on Tuesday, April 19, turned up a motor vehicle key, which opened the doors of Greaves’ jeep and turned over the ignition.

Primus was also charged with one count of kidnapping, two counts of rape and two counts of buggery, allegedly committed between January 1 and April 15 this year in Vermont.

While investigating the kidnapping of Vermont resident Mewanah Hadaway, police are said to have unearthed evidence linking Primus to Greaves’ murder.

The Preliminary Inquiry is now set for November 17, 2016. (AS)
