On Monday the prosecution led by Attorney Javier Chan and supported by Attorneys Shanidi Chell and Javier Burns had entered a submission to have three more witnesses testify. Today Judge Herbert Lord upheld the submission and Berta Alonzo, Carol Ann Chavaria and Carrasco’s mother Sandra Carrasco took the stand.
All three rebutted Sabido’s testimony in which he stated Carrasco was home at six on the evening of February 28th 2011 and started a quarrel that later ended in a struggle in which Carrasco injured herself.
The women in essence testified that Carrasco was with the family preparing for her great grandmother’s funeral up until shortly after eight that night before she returned to her home she shared with Sabido in the San Lorenzo Housing Site Area in Orange Walk Town.
Following the statements, the prosecution and defence presented their closing argument and Judge Lord will be hand down his decision on April 18th 2016.
