POOR CASE BY THE CROWN
In a submission by the accused lawyers on November 14th, 2022, attorneys argued that the Crown had failed to present sufficient evidence against their clients that would render them guilty as accused.
Attorneys of the men, directed the court to a number of areas where the prosecution did not provide satisfactory evidence, which included; the absence of forensic evidence, poor CCTV video and that the origin of the blunt trauma injury Stanley received, could not identified.
Prosecuting the case were Principal Crown Council Kellee-Gai Smith and Crown Council Kristian Johnson.
Stanley’s decomposed body was found on July 28, 2016, two months after he went missing.
More to come as the story develops.
