Derrick Munnings acquitted of the 2011 attempted murder of Donovan Pratt

While Navarro has been committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court, Derrick Munnings has been acquitted of an attempted murder charge. The twenty-one year old was accused of the April 2011 attempted murder of Donovan Pratt during a basketball game in Ladyville. After day one of trial today and more than three years on remand, Justice Troadio Gonzalez freed Munnings of the charge in the Supreme Court in a case of trial by judge without a jury. The case for prosecutor Leeroy Banner came to a sudden halt when his own witness, the stabbing victim, testified that he was not certain who had stabbed him.  Munnings, who is a resident of the La Milpa area in Ladyville, was told he had no case to answer to and was free to go.
