Erasmo Lino Freed of Murder Charge

Erasmo Lino

A murder case fell apart in the Supreme Court before Justice Troadio Gonzalez on Monday. Thirty-one year old Erasmo Lino walked from the murder of twenty-four year old Laurencio Ho Junior. Lino was charged back in March 2011 for killing his Roaring Creek neighbour, who met his death while celebrating his birthday. The D.P.P.’s office entered a nolle prosequi and Lino was told he was free to go.  No reason was given for the decision, but at the time of the murder, there were conflicting reports as to who made the first move causing Ho Junior’s death. Lino had allegedly threatened to kill Ho Junior the night prior to the murder. But there was another report that the deceased had first inflicted a chop wound to Lino and as a result, Lino pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest. It is also known that before the D.P.P.’s office could send her directives, police levied the murder charges against Lino. The homicide was said to have been triggered over a puppy belonging to Ho Junior that had been killed.
