Suspects freed in Husman murder case

Story PictureWhile one police officer will be heading to jail, five other defendants charged with murder are about to be set free. Today prosecutor Marjorie Moyston dropped a bombshell on the court of Justice Adolph Lucas when she revealed that the D.P.P.’s office has requested that murder charges be dropped against five people accused in the killing of Nadir Husman. The nolle prosequi filing means that Madina Martinez, Gerald Tillett, Keon Williams, Kent Skeete, and Ellington Ottley will be released from custody but charges can be re-filed if new evidence is presented. Husman’s bullet ridden body was discovered at the Salt Creek Rifle Range on June twentieth, 2004, where he had gone for some target practice. No reasons were given by the prosecution for their about face, but back in September defence attorney Ellis Arnold told Magistrate’s Court that “police investigators have admitted off the record that they have no evidence.”
