Recaptured prisoner to stand High Court trial for murder
Recaptured prison escapee, Pascal Smith was committed to stand trial IN the High Court for the capital offence of murder.
Smith, 25 was committed by Magistrate Leron Daly on Friday, December 8, 2017, after more than four months of a preliminary inquiry into the matter.
The indictment alleged that on May 27, 2017, at Alexander Street, Georgetown, Smith murdered John Houston.
In July, Smith was one of 13 inmates who escaped from the pasture at the Lusignan Prison. A few days later, the police found Smith hiding in a “latrine” in a yard in Kitty, Georgetown. He is currently severing a one-year sentence for escaping from the prison facility.
