Sedley Liverpool, who is one of the men charged with the killing of Mocha Mechanic Terrence Lanferman, was committed to stand trial yesterday, just days after his lawyer had argued that there was insufficient evidence against him.
Liverpool is alleged to have murdered Lanferman on June 1st, 2015, at Nelson Street, Mocha, along with his co-accused Kenkassie Lynch, who was committed to stand trial for the crime last year.
At the conclusion of the preliminary inquiry into the charge yesterday, Georgetown Magistrate Fabayo Azore found that a prima facie case was made out against the accused for the offence.
Asked if he wished to say anything, or if he would like to call any witness, the accused stated that he would reserve those for the High Court.
Subsequently, Liverpool was told that he was committed to stand trial at the next practicable sitting of the Demerara Assizes.
Lanferman, 23, of Lot 127 Nelson Street, Mocha, was shot dead, execution-style, at his home. At the time, he was the lone occupant of the bottom flat of the two-storey house, where he resided with his mother.
