Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: A jury of 7 men and 5 women is deliberating in the court of Justice John Gonzalez to see if it can reach a verdict for Daniel Myvett, charged with the murder of Nigerian Security guard Kimaru Olangodudu. Olangodudu was stabbed about 8 times February 14, 2010, while he was on duty at Biltmore Plaza Hotel.
His body was found the following day in the security booth. The incident occurred during an attempted robbery of the hotel. Two other persons, Talbert Mena and Jamal Jackson, who were charged along with Myvett, were acquitted of the charge after their attorneys, Simeon Sampson and Alifa Elrington, submitted that they did not have a case to answer to.
The chief witness for the prosecution was Kareem Stevens who was initially charged with Olangodudu’s murder but had agreed to testify for the Crown in exchange for immunity from prosecution. Stevens was deemed a hostile witness when he took the witness stand and denied that he gave the police a statement.
Myvett gave a statement from the dock in which he denied he committed the offence. Myvett is being represented by attorney Alifa Elrington. Crown Sheneiza Smith is representing the Crown.
