Leslie Frazier found guilty of Attempted Murder

Leslie Frazier

Thirty-four year old Leslie Frazier, charged with the attempted murder of Faron Waight, was today found guilty by Justice Adolph Lucas, after the conclusion of a trial without jury.  The incident occurred between eleven p.m. and midnight on May twenty-ninth, 2011. Waight testified and told the court that while he was at his residence, at the corner of King Street and Amara Avenue, he saw Frazier, who used to live with his common-law wife, lurking nearby. He went for a piece of stick and jumped on a bicycle to pursue Frazier, but when he caught up with Frazier, he pulled a machete out of his bag and chopped Waight to the back of his head as he was turning around to leave, causing him to fall to the ground. As Waight lay on the ground, Frazier reportedly stood over him and chopped him several times. Waight’s common-law wife Dana Mortis testified that she saw Frazier chopping Waight with the machete. Frazier gave an alibi from the stand, claiming that at the time of the incident he was working as a security guard at the Glenn D. Godfrey Law Firm at the corner of Barrack Road and Craig Street. He called one witness in support of his testimony, Henry Louriano. But Louriano’s testimony failed to provide support to his defense. Sentencing will take place on December sixth.
