Wilson, 37, mason, was convicted on Friday, March 8, by a twelve member mixed jury at the High Court, for the murder of his former lover, Stephmnie Daniel, also of Greiggs.

Wilson was also convicted for the attempted murder of Vasilka Maloney, of the same address.

The crown’s case was that on August 14, 2011, Daniel, a 33-year-old mother of three, was in the company of Shirley Wilson at Shirley’s home, when Aubrey showed up. Aubrey accused Daniel of talking about him, which Shirley Wilson denied.

When the deceased attempted to get up from where she was seated, Aubrey pushed her down on a chair.

Daniel again attempted to get up from where she was seated, when Aubrey pulled her towards him and stabbed her in the neck with a knife.

Her friend, Vasilka Maloney, who witnessed the incident, said after Aubrey inflicted the fatal stab to her friend, as he was passing her, he said, “and you too”.

Aubrey then attacked Maloney, but she managed to fend him off. She, however, sustained injuries to the left side of her face and left hand.

In his testimony to the court, Aubrey said when he went into the porch to talk to the deceased, Maloney came and said, “Mek you don’t leave the [expletive] girl”.

He said Maloney was standing behind him and the deceased was facing him when Maloney pulled a knife from her bosom.

Aubrey added that he saw Maloney coming with the knife and he pushed Daniel. She then collided with Maloney, causing both of them to fall to the ground.

He denied stabbing the deceased.

Director of Public Prosecutions Colin Williams led the case for the crown. Crown counsel Ayanna Baptiste-DaBreo and Kareem Nelson also appeared with the DPP.

Justice Wesley James presided, while attorney Stephen Williams represented Wilson.(KW)
