THE case of a man standing trial in connection with a Halloween night armed robbery was discontinued yesterday in Supreme Court.
Charges of three armed robberies against Kendal Lord were dropped when prosecutors presented a nolle prosequi signed by the Attorney General asking that the matter be discontinued.

Seeing the document, Justice Vera Watkins obliged the order and informed the accused that the case against him was being discontinued.

However the judge told the accused that the Crown, if it chose to, could bring the matter back to court at any time.

Lord, who denied the charges, was accused of robbing three women of cash, cellphones and other personal items on October 31, 2011.

He was represented by Romona Farquharson-Seymour and Candice Hepburn.
Basil Cumberbatch and Maria Zancolla appeared for the Crown.
