Seven persons take the stand in Greaves murder PI

After two consecutive days of testimonies at the Serious Offences Court, the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the murder of real estate agent Sharleen Greaves continues today.

While the PI only determines if the case would make it to the High Court, Greaves’s family seem anxious to hear the testimony of Veron Primus, the man charged with the real estate agent’s murder.

So far, the court has accepted testimonies from seven persons, including two certified doctors, two police officers, Greaves’s mother and her secretary.

The PI continues more than a year after Greaves was found stabbed to death at her Bijou Real Estate office in Arnos Vale on November 13, 2015.

Her Suzuki Escudo vehicle was also found abandoned in the Wilson Hill area hours after her body was discovered and reports are that a search at Primus’ home on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 turned up a motor vehicle key, which opened the doors of Greaves’ jeep and turned over the ignition.

Primus was also charged with one count of kidnapping, two counts of rape and two counts of buggery, allegedly committed between January 1 and April 15 this year at Vermont.

While investigating the kidnapping of Vermont resident Mewanah Hadaway, police are said to have unearthed evidence linking Primus to Greaves’s murder.

It is not clear how many persons would take the stand today. (AS)
