Appeal by convicted murderer, Orlando Wade, dismissed

The Court of Appeal this morning dismissed an appeal by Orlando Wade, who was convicted in January 2011 for the murder of Dorla Pitterson and sentenced to life in prison. Pitterson, a mental patient, was strangled and then dumped in a well in Sandhill in June of 2008. Her body was found by a neighbor, Barry Rosales, who testified in the Supreme Court that he saw Wade beating Slusher the previous night and learned the following morning that she had been killed. The Director of Public Prosecutions, Cheryl Lynn Vidal appeared on behalf of the Crown while Attorney Simeon Sampson appeared for the appellant.

    He should hang. I’ll supply the rope and kick the stool. This murder was especially cruel and heinous because the victim was so defenseless.
