‘Spin and Kill’ acquitted after four years on remand for murder
After spending four years on remand, Travis Archer called ‘Spin and Kill’ was on Wednesday freed of a murder charge after Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall upheld a no-case submission made by his attorney Latchmie Rahamat.
Archer was on trial before a 12-member jury and had pleaded not guilty to the offence which read that on November 3 or 4, 2017, at ‘Black-and-White Bridge’ in ‘C’ Field, Sophia, he murdered Jamal Munroe.
The State was represented by Prosecutor Lisa Cave.
The defence, in its no-case submission, argued that the prosecution failed to lead sufficient evidence to prove its case against Archer.
Among other things, Rahamat said that there was insufficient evidence in relation to identification and there was no nexus linking her client to the crime.
The judge agreed with the submissions and directed the jury to return a formal verdict of not guilty.
According to a police report, Munroe was shot several times by a lone gunman on November 3, 2017 and he died the next day while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
