Judge to rule on no-case submission in Hope murder trial
Justice Franklyn Holder is set to rule today on a no-case submission made by defence attorneys for the two men charged with the 2010 murder of Lakeram Bishundial during a robbery.
On trial for the murder are Orin David, called ‘Plait Hair,’ and Shawn Thom, of 128 Third Street, Alexander Village. They are charged with murdering Bishundial on August 21, 2010 at Hope, East Coast Demerara.
The prosecution, which is being led by Senior State Counsel Judith Gildharie-Mursalin, closed its case last Wednesday after calling 14 witnesses.
