Dale Seecharan

Man charged with killing Shannon Banfield back in court

Almost three months after Republic Bank Limited employee Shannon Banfield was murdered, the preliminary inquiry into her killing is yet to commence.

Dale Seecharan yesterday made his fourth appearance in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates’ Court since being charged with the crime on December 19 last year.

Yesterday’s hearing was brief as prosecutors are yet to file and serve the witness statements and evidence they plan to use for Seecharan’s preliminary inquiry and eventual trial.
