The defence wrapped up its case in the Cyon ‘Picture Boy’ Collier murder trial yesterday.
Defence attorney Lyndon Amsterdam made closing arguments before Justice Diana Insanally and the jury, which lasted the entire session of the trial yesterday.
Today, State Prosecutor Judith Gildharie-Mursalin will make her closing arguments to the court, after which Justice Insanally will sum up the evidence presented to the court during the trial.
Collier denied that he killed Ray Walcott, called ‘Sugar’, and his younger brother, Carl Andrews, called ‘Alo’, on September 23, 2006 at Victoria, East Coast Demerara.
However, in his caution statement given to the police, which was admitted as evidence in the trial, he stated that he had indeed shot the two men after he had given one of them an AK-47 gun to keep that was never returned to him.
