Veron Primus PI begins


The Preliminary Inquiry into the matter in which Veron Primus is charged with the murder of real estate agent Sharleen Greaves began yesterday at the Serious Offences Court.

Yesterday, Dr Michael Goodluck, a registered medical practitioner attached to the Arnos Vale area and Dr Ronald Child, a registered surgical pathologist attached to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, gave evidence at the court.{{more}}

Primus, who is representing himself, after his former lawyer Michaela Ambrose removed herself as his counsel, asked Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias for a brief adjournment before the physicians took the stand.

The prosecution did not object in principle to the request for adjournment; however, they asked that given the nature of the work of the physicians, that they be allowed to testify.

The doctors’ testimonies were then admitted into evidence.

Sharleen Greaves was found stabbed to death at her Bijou Real Estate office in Arnos Vale on November 13, 2015.

Greaves’ Suzuki Escudo vehicle was found abandoned in the Wilson Hill area hours after her body was discovered and reports are that a search at Primus’ home on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 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 at 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 expected to continue on Wednesday, December 14, 2016. (AS)
