Fmr. murder accused charged with rape
A 42-year-old man, who was previously accused of two murders, on Wednesday appeared before Senior Magistrate, Leron Daly, charged with the rape of a 13-year-old girl.
Odingo Greene of Wisroc Housing Scheme, Linden, and also of Station Street Kitty, Georgetown, was not required to plea to the indictable charge.
It is alleged that between November 1 – 31, 2016 in Georgetown, he engaged in sexual activity with a child under the age of 16.
He was remanded to prison until November 21.
In 2012, the High Court freed Greene of the murder of 28-year-old Nazalene Mohamed due to insufficient evidence.
He was also convicted of the murder of Sandra Harvey on April 26, 2004, and was sentenced to death by Justice Dawn Gregory-Barnes.
But a retrial was ordered by the Guyana Court of Appeal and this was done before Justice Jaynarayan Singh who upheld a No Case Submission and discharged the conviction on May 12, 2005.
