Taxi Driver Must Wait For Murder Trial Date


Tribune Staff Reporter


A TAXI driver accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend in her car at a gas station will have to wait five weeks for a trial date.

John Manuel Adderley, 40, appeared in Supreme Court yesterday for a fixture hearing concerning the murder of Denise Adderley, the country’s third homicide for 2011.

However, that hearing was adjourned to November 18 for mention and fixing of a trial date before Justice Bernard Turner.

Adderley is accused of the January 9, 2011 murder of Denise Adderley.

Ms Adderley, a pre-school teacher at the Uriah McPhee primary school, was gunned down on the night in question inside her car at the Texaco Service Station on the corner of Wulff and Kemp roads.

The taxi-driver, who was arraigned before Justice Isaacs on July 8, 2011, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

He has retained Murrio Ducille to defend him.
