Given another chance at trial for marijuana conviction

Lance Welch

Lance Welch and Jermaine Matura were today acquitted of the 2009 Kraal Road attempted murders of Glenford Burgess and Keon Francis. The two men were acquitted of the attempt murder after the two victims refused to testify against the alleged gunmen. The charge was in connection with the shooting of Burgess and Francis who were hanging out with a group of men when the two men allegedly pass and fired shots at the group. One of the victims told the court that he couldn’t recall what happened that day; while the second man didn’t show up at court to testify. After two days in trial, Justice Herbert Lord later directed the jury to acquit the men because there was no evidence to prove the crime.
