EIGHTEEN months after a barber was charged with murder, prosecutors produced a written directive from the Attorney General’s Office requesting that proceedings be discontinued.
While 39-year-old Julian Taylor was discharged, he was told by Justice Carolita Bethell that the Attorney General’s Office could bring the case against him again at any time in the Supreme Court.
The nolle prosequi was presented by prosecutor Neil Braithwaite on Wednesday.
Taylor, of Summer Street, was alleged to have committed murder on January 27, 2013.
It was claimed that Taylor, on the day in question, caused the death of 34-year-old Theodore Ash in what was believed to be a business deal gone wrong.
Ash was found dead in bushes off Dean’s Lane with multiple gunshot wounds to the body.
Taylor denied the murder charge when formally arraigned in Supreme Court.
He was represented by Dr Glendon Rolle and Ashton McQuay.
