THE Supreme Court jury hearing evidence in the Marco Archer murder trial was asked by the presiding judge to return for duty on Tuesday, May 21.
The 11 woman/one man jury was expected to hear testimony in yesterday’s proceedings, which marked the 18th day of trial.
However, the entire day was spent on legal submissions and discussion between attorneys and Justice Bernard Turner and at the end of the day, the judge told the jury that their presence would not be needed until May 21.
Kofhe Goodman, 37, of Yorkshire Drive, faces a murder charge, which he denies. It is claimed that between September 23 and 28 of 2011, he caused the death of Marco Archer, 11, who disappeared from Brougham Street and was found dead days later.
Garvin Gaskins, Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, along with Neil Braithwaite and Darell Taylor, are prosecuting the case.
Geoffrey Farquharson is defending Kofhe Goodman.
