By BBN Staff: Today marks day one of the trial of Ashley Meighan and Clement Bol for the brutal 2014 murder of 16-year-old Chryslin Gladden, whose body was found with multiple stab wounds to the body and face.
The duo appeared in the Supreme Court today before Justice Antoinette Moore. Meighan showed up to court represented by Ellis Arnold SC, while Bol was represented by attorney Oscar Selgado.
Prosecutor Porsha Staine-Ferguson, called four witnesses today, one of which was the victim’s mother, Delma Victoria Gladden. In court she gave an emotional testimony, explaining that Gladden left home and went to orientation at UB for 8:30 a.m. and came back around 7:00 that night.
After getting a visitor, her daughter left home again, promising to be home by 9:00 p.m., but never returned. Gladden made several calls looking for her daughter but did not make any progress until the next day when she got a call that her daughter’s body was found at the Lord Ridge Cemetery.
She went on to say that, at the cemetery, police had the body covered with a sheet and she asked the officers to lift it so she could see. At recounting the condition she saw her daughter’s body in, she broke down and cried in court, and was given a glass of water to drink.
The case adjourned at 1:00 p.m. and is expected to resume at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow.
