Friday, October 17, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: 32 year old Karim Barona is free tonight despite being accused of murder. His trial for the murder of 41 year old Elvis Rhamdas began on Thursday before Justice Troadio Gonzalez in the Supreme Court.
Three formal witnesses testified for the prosecution and the main witness was scheduled to take the stand today.
However, he could not be located and so the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, represented by Crown Counsel Kileru Awich, entered a motion of nolle prosequi, indicating that Barona was free to go unless and until the witness could be located and brought to trial.
Rhamdas was stabbed multiple times in his body between 8:30 and 9 p.m. on April 29, 2011, while he was at the corner of New Road and Victoria Street.
Barona is represented by attorney Anthony Sylvestre.
