Two death row inmates, con-
victed of murdering their neigh-
bours, scored major legal victo-
ries yesterday when their
convictions were quashed by the
Court of Appeal.
In the first case, three Appeal
Court judges ordered a retrial for
a 34-year-old man of Princes
Town, who was jointly charged
with his father and brother for
murdering their neighbour in
Although his relatives were freed
in the trial in 2012, the jury in
the San Fernando High Court
decided that Sterlin Vincent, of
St Croix Road, Lengua Village,
Princes Town, was guilty.
In an oral judgment delivered
at the Hall of Justice, Port-of-
Spain, yesterday morning, the
judges said Vincent deserved a
retrial, as former High Court and
current International Criminal
Court judge Geoffrey Henderson
failed to instruct the jury ade-
quately on his claim of self-
Vincent, his 47-year-old broth-
er, Sylvester, and 68-year-old
father, Emmanuel, were accused
of stabbing Clifton Alleyne to
death on February 1, 2005.
Alleyne, 48, was attacked by a
group of men and stabbed several
times in the chest, abdomen and
back. The incident took place
metres away from his home.
Vincent s fellow inmate Nigel
Caraballo was luckier as the court
said it could not order a retrial
owing to issues with the quality
of evidence presented in his trial
in January last year.
As a result, he was ordered to
be immediately released from
Caraballo, 28, was found guilty
of shooting 27-year-old Imo Pop
outside a cocoa house at Moruga
Old Road, Moruga, on March 7,
While no one witnessed the
shooting, state prosecutors led
Court of Appeal judges Paula Mae-Weekes, Alice Yorke-Soo Hon
and Mark Mohammed sat on the appeal panel.
Vincent was represented by Rajiv Persad, John Heath and Susan
Kalipersad, and Senior Counsel Sophia Chote appeared for
Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Kathy Ann
evidence from 90-year-old Isaac
Navarro, the owner of the shed, that
he saw Caraballo in the area shortly
after the incident. Navarro is blind in
Anton Alexander, the other witness
who linked Caraballo to the crime, was
deemed a hostile witness after he gave
conflicting accounts in his statement
and during the preliminary inquiry.
Before giving its decision, the court
said the evidence against Caraballo
was weak and would not improve in
Legal victories for death row inmates...
One freed, retrial for another
