Murder trial of cousins underway

Derrick Parham

The murder trial of cousins Derrick and Kenrick Parham commenced this morning in the chamber of Justice Adolph Lucas.  Both men are accused of stabbing Orlando Montero, also known as Vega, in the wee hours of July eleventh, 2008 near the Mahogany Heights community.  It is alleged that Montero was at the bus stop when he was approached by the pair who proceeded to throw bottles at him. The young man ran away but was soon caught by the Parhams, who allegedly inflicted multiple stab wounds to Montero’s body and it was later discovered lying face up in the nearby bushes.  In court today, prosecutor Shameilla Williams called three witnesses, including Montero’s wife, to the stand.

Arlette Montero testified to identifying her husband at the morgue moments before a post-mortem examination was conducted.  The second and third witnesses were both Scenes of Crime personnel who tendered into evidence a number of photos taken of the deceased.  The case was adjourned at noon today and will resume on Friday morning where the main witness is scheduled to take the stand.  Representing Derrick and Kenrick Parham are attorneys Richard ‘Dickie’ Bradley and Leo Bradley.

    they need to let these two brother rot in prison for the rest of there lives. They don’t have anything better to do than take someone life. They both would be the first to get the deth penalty , hang them or give them the a firing squad. That is what the deserve. Don’t even waste to government or the public money on these animals.
