A 29-year-old Bermudian man who, along with four others, was accused of murder in the UK, has had all charges dropped against him in a Manchester court.
Jahmico Trott, formerly of Pembroke, was accused of murdering Oliver Tetlow in March last year. He was charged with the crime on July 29, 2016.
According to the Brent & Kilburn Times, it was alleged that Trott and another man, Roman Young, 22, were recruited by a rapper Cbiz, whose real name is David Osadebay to attack the deceased, who was mistaken for another man who appeared in a parody video which mocked the entertainer after being robbed of his jewelry.
However, during the murder trial, which commenced in December 2016, Judge Gerald Gordon directed the jury to acquit the men of the charge, after a witness provided an alibi regarding their location at the time of the murder.
Yesterday, Osadebay and Mohamed Siamino, 20, were also acquitted of murder.
Speaking to Today In Bermuda, Trott expressed relief with the exoneration: “This has been a turbulent time, but through it all, my faith in Allah and my family helped me get through this. Everyone who was charged with the crime was acquitted, so the truth has set us free.”
