Dekel Bennett charged with Attempted Murder

Dekel Bennett

The trial of Dekel Bennett, a security guard accused of stabbing twenty-four year old Dwayne Staine during an altercation at the Battlefield Park in June 2009, began this morning before Justice Herbert Lord.  Newly appointed Crown Counsel Stevanni Duncan called several witnesses to the stand where they testified to observing Bennett inflict a stab wound to Staine’s abdomen following a dispute.  Staine and two other men were purchasing hotdogs on Albert Street when he decided to urinate near the park.  Bennett then allegedly approached Staine and warned him that he could not pee near the park.  The security guard allegedly advanced and stabbed him multiple times to the body.  The trial has been adjourned until March fifth where the doctor who examined Staine is scheduled to testify before the prosecution rests its case.
