Fmr. murder accused to stand High Court trial for rape
Forty-three-year-old Odingo Greene, who was previously accused of two murders, has been committed to stand trial at the High Court for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl between November 1 – 31, 2016 in Georgetown.
Greene of Wisroc Housing Scheme, Linden, and also of Station Street Kitty, Georgetown, was on trial before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly for the indictable offence.
He was represented by Attorney-at-law Adrian Thompson while the matter was prosecuted by Richard Harris.
He remains on $350,000 bail. It is alleged that the teenager was home alone when he forced himself into her room and raped her.
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.
