The murder trial for 26-year-old Luis Carter ended in a conviction this morning before Justice Colin Williams. This morning, the murder trial against Carter, ended in a conviction but Justice Williams has deferred sentencing of the convict for next week, Friday, February 28. Carter was charged and arraigned for the murder of Dwayne Hyde which occurred on July 13, 2016.
