Kaieteur News: The heavens smiled on Dexter Marshall yesterday when a unanimous verdict of not guilty was returned by a 12-member mixed jury who heard the murder case of Mark Caesar, called ‘Lil Mark’. Marshall hurriedly exited the court when Justice Roxanne George-Wiltshire told the accused that he was free to go. But not before he expressed sincere thanks to the jury which restored his freedom.
Dr. Singh said that the deceased was shot 12 times. Under the direction of State Prosecutors Rhondel Weaver and Natasha Barker, Dr Singh said that the ninth bullet fired at the deceased went through the right side of the skull and brain and exited through the left side.
The tenth bullet went through Caesar’s right temple, through the skull and brain and exited the left side. The eleventh bullet went through the deceased back, piercing his lungs and exiting through the left arm pit. This caused one-fifth of the blood in Caesar’s body to flood his lung, Singh said.
In Marshall’s unsworn statement he said that he played no part in the crime. He said that he was never associated with the star witness and was not called by the nick name “Deckie.”
