Court Finds Government Liable in Murder of Policeman

In September 2013, Police Constable Dean Yearwood was shot and killed by fellow officer Glenwayne Grant.  In July, Yearwood’s family took the government to court and today Judge Sonya Young ruled that Government was liable and must pay the family over sixty five thousand dollars.  Her ruling is yet to be given in writing as only a draft of it was provided to both sides.  The Yearwood family is being represented by Phillip Palacio while the Government was represented by the Solicitor General Office representative, Triennia Young and Agassi Finnegan. Young told the media she cannot say at this time whether the Government will appeal the decision.
