Accused admitted to stabbing in self defence
Passageway murder trial
– policeman testifies
Roger Pilgrim, who is being tried for the 2011 murder of his neighbour Shane Rowley in `A’ Field Sophia, had admitted to stabbing Rowley twice in his caution statement, a police witness testified yesterday.
Pilgrim is accused of killing Rowley in January 2011 after a long-standing feud over the use of a passageway. He is on trial before a 12-member jury and Justice Dawn Gregory in the High Court.
Police witness Cabnauth Singh told the court that Pilgrim had confessed in an oral statement to injuring Rowley. Singh said Pilgrim was then asked to give a written statement and he agreed, adding that no force or violence was used against him.
