Ex-Judiciary worker among three to stand trial for murder

A for­mer Ju­di­cia­ry em­ploy­ee was among three per­sons from Mor­vant that have been com­mit­ted to stand tri­al for mur­der­ing a 65-year-old phar­ma­cist in March, last year. 


Chief Mag­is­trate Maria Bus­by-Ear­le-Cad­dle com­mit­ted Runako May­ers, 20, of Red Hill, Mor­vant, Shan­ice Al­leyne, 26, and 20-year-old Chris­ton Lovelace, both of Plover Street in Mor­vant, at the end of their pre­lim­i­nary in­quiry in the Port-of-Spain Mag­is­trates’ Court on Tues­day. 

They are ac­cused of mur­der­ing con­sul­tant phar­ma­cist Nicholas George dur­ing what was re­port­ed to be a botched car-jack­ing on March 3, last year. 

George was at his home at Wendy Fitzwilliam Boule­vard, in Diego Mar­tin, when he was re­port­ed­ly at­tacked by per­sons who at­tempt­ed to rob him of his Hyundai Tus­con. George re­port­ed­ly re­sist­ed and was shot. 

The trio was al­so charged with pos­ses­sion of a firearm and am­mu­ni­tion and were al­so com­mit­ted to stand tri­al for those charges. 


May­ers was rep­re­sent­ed by Saman­tha Ram­saran while Shel­don Guer­ra rep­re­sent­ed Lovelace.

Al­leyne, a for­mer clerk at the Fam­i­ly Court, was rep­re­sent­ed by Se­nior Coun­sel Is­rael Khan. 

Dy­lan Mar­tin and Chanelle Moe rep­re­sent­ed the Of­fice of the Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions (DPP).
