A Look Back at the Tragic Murder of Christie Carrasco

Attorney Oscar Salgado, representing Osmar Sabido, stated in an interview at the start of the trial that his client would make a case for self-defence. That is consistent with Sabido’s testimony given today in which he claimed he was attacked by Carrasco who tried to stab him. One witness for the prosecution, Deon Faber, took the stand last week to state that he saw when Sabido made a stabbing motion at Carrasco, and he stated that he was at the scene immediately after and grabbed Sabido by the hands until Police arrived. Today, Sabido told the Court that is a lie, since nobody was at the scene but he and Carrasco until Police arrived minutes after. With five years between crime and trial, details may have become murky, so we thought we’d revisit the story we did at the time, aired on March first, 2011.

While the trial will likely end on Thursday, Justice Lord has indicated that his decision will be handed down in the second week of April.
