Ronlee Petillo

Today, Supreme Court Justice Colin Williams granted bail to Ronlee Petillo, who is accused of the murder of Roger Banner.  Petillo’s attorney, Anthony Sylvestre argued that the petitioner has been remanded for longer than four years, a fact to which the prosecution, represented by Crown Counsel Riis Cattouse admitted.  Justice Williams granted Petillo bail of thirty thousand dollars and imposed conditions which he must abide, including that he cannot interfere with any of the prosecution’s witnesses. He also cannot leave the jurisdiction without the expressed permission of a judge of the Supreme Court and he must report to the Euphrates Avenue Police Station twice-a-week.  Petillo is to return to court on September twenty-second, when his case is scheduled to be called. Banner was killed in July of 2016 on West Canal.
