Some of the accused men who were found not guilty on a charge of murder at the Hall of Justice in Port of Spain on Friday.

(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – Nine men have been found not guilty of chopping to death a Cocorite man in 2010.

At the Port of Spain High Court on Friday, Justice Devan Rampersad directed a 12-member jury to return not guilty verdicts in favour of the accused after upholding no-case submissions made by their attorneys.

They were charged with killing 24-year-old Ameil George at Harding Place, Cocorite, on January 18, 2010.

Those freed are: Reinaldo Marcano, 36, Raymond Birot, 45, Jirt Serrette, 32, Keston Morris, 27, Gerard Hepburn 24, Devon Samuel, 24, Terrence “Trix” David, Keon “Taliban” Lawrence and Joel “Snake” Roberts, 25.

Three other men who were also charged with the crime had their no-case submissions dismissed and therefore now has the option to go into the witness box and give evidence or call witnesses to testify in their defence before the jury embarks on deliberations.
