Appeals Court hears case of men convicted of murder

Glenford ‘Bucket’ Bermude

The second session of the Court of Appeal for 2013 commenced today with the panel of judges, including President Manuel Sosa, considering the appeals of two convicted murderers.  Forty-one year old Glenford ‘Bucket’ Bermudez, a Hattieville resident, who was found guilty of the murder of his wife Raquel Bermudez, appeared before the panel but was left out in the cold when attorney Hubert Elrington recused himself from the case this morning.  Bucket has been given until Tuesday morning to retain the services of an attorney or his appeal will be heard without him having legal representation.  The other case is that of Emerson Eaghan, who is convicted of killing thirty-six year old Dennis Nembhard in June 2009.  Eaghan is being represented by Senior Counsel Simeon Sampson, who argued that the trial judge erred when he failed to direct the jurors regarding the weight of a statement given by the main witness in Nembhard’s murder.
