TUBMANBURG, March 3 (LINA) - The 11th Judicial Circuit Court in the Tubmanburg, Bomi County, handed down a guilty verdict in a murder case involving a 40-year-old man, Oldpa Boryou.
Defendant Boryou was on the 8th of March 2013 arrested by Bomi County police, for his alleged involvement in the murder of Papa Zubah in Guie Town on the Bomi-Monrovia highway.
Presiding Judge Evelina Quaqua said the judgment of the court is based on the unanimous guilty verdict handed down by jurors.
Meanwhile, prosecutor Attorney Juma Karnley has described the verdict is an "overwhelming victory" for the state.
But Defense Counsel, Attorney J. Sackor Doe, has taken exception to the guilty verdict handed down by the jurors, and is seeking a retrial of the case.
At the time of his arrest, Defendant Boryou accused the deceased of allegedly stealing his palm wine in the bush.
