Grinage Brothers Freed

BLACK FRIDAY.00_02_51_03.Still015

John and Sheldon Grinage, who were on trial for the murder of 32-year-old Mariano Castillo, were able to go home after a nolle prosequi was entered today. This morning, Crown Counsel Portia Staine-Ferguson was forced to enter the nolle prosequi indicating that they will no longer pursue the case since the third witness could not be located.

John and Sheldon Grinage, who were on trial for the murder of 32-year-old Mariano Castillo, were able to go home after a nolle prosequi was entered today. This morning, Crown Counsel Portia Staine-Ferguson was forced to enter the nolle prosequi indicating that they will no longer pursue the case since the third witness could not be located. At the commencement of trial, it was obvious that the case was in trouble when Kamisha Roches, an eyewitness and Castillo’s girlfriend, at the time, recanted the statement that she gave to the police. The prosecution was hopeful that Corporal Melendez’s testimony about recording Roches’ statement would help their case, but it was inadmissible since Justice Colin Williams was not persuaded that Roches was the author. All these factors prevented the prosecution from moving on including the fact that the third witness did not show up in court today.  As a result, Justice Williams discharged the brothers, who were represented by attorney Sharmaine Gillett.  The Grinage brothers were being tried for the January 30, 2016 murder of Mariano Castillo.  Castillo resided in Georgetown Village, Stann Creek District.  He was fatally stabbed while walking with his girlfriend on Mahogany Street Extension in Belize City.  While the brothers were free to go today, the prosecution noted that the matter can be brought back if they have new evidence.
