Accused Murderer Hugh Dyer Walks on Nolle Pros

Hugh Dyer

Thirty-five-year-old Hugh Dyer, who has been incarcerated since 2015 pending the outcome of a murder trial, walked away from the charge today when a nolle prosequi was entered.  On July nineteenth 2015, Steven Munnings, a resident of Hattieville, was reportedly bludgeoned by Dyer whose estranged common-law wife had given him a house key to repair her bathroom.  It is alleged that when Dyer learned of the arrangement, he followed his former live-in girlfriend to the plumber’s house and viciously attacked him with a piece of two-by-four.  The trial commenced on Monday in the courtroom of Justice Colin Williams where the Crown was represented by Porsha-Staine Ferguson who had called seven witnesses to the stand.  The Crown Counsel entered a nolle pros this afternoon when her main witness, Michelle Brakeman, the estranged common-law wife of Dyer, could not be located.  Hugh Dyer was represented by attorney Oscar Selgado.
