Grenadian Phil “Greenz” Henry murder case moves to High Court

The prosecution has already closed its case in the murder trial where Chapman’s village resident Osrick “Herbs-I” Young is charged with the murder of Grenadian Phil “Greenz” Henry.{{more}}

The prosecution was led by Director of Public Prosecutions, Colin Williams and recently appointed crown counsel Kareem Nelson, appearing in his first trial.

Henry, a Grenadian, died as a result of a gunshot wound to his face on April 17, 2009, at Morne Ronde Mountains.

The court has already heard from several prosecution witnesses, one of whom said two men opened fire on the deceased.

Wayne “Stiah” Dublin, farmer of South Rivers told the court that he was sitting close to his shed, cleaning marijuana with the deceased, when the accused and another man, Kenroy “Crabby” Glasgow, fired at them with shotguns.

He noted that when both men fired at them, he jumped over an embankment. He said while over the embankment, about six shots were fired in his direction.

Other witnesses had testified that there was an argument between the deceased, the accused and Glasgow over money the day before Henry, 32, was shot.

In a police statement, the accused said it was Glasgow who killed the deceased.

Glasgow, 33, was also charged with the murder of Henry back in 2009, but he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Glasgow was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment last week, at the High Court.

In mitigation, Glasgow’s attorney Kay Bacchus-Browne said her client took the responsibility and pleaded guilty at an early stage.

Bacchus-Browne also stated that Glasgow had only fired a shot to frighten the deceased, but the fatal bullet came from another gun.

The case continues at the High Court. Jomo Thomas is representing Young.
