After months of attending court and his matter not being tried, murder accused Alex Barker called ‘Amkabima’ must have felt some relief yesterday as the Preliminary Inquiry into the murder of his ex-wife Roselanie Pearl Hall, ex-owner of Alpha Hotel, resumed.
Barker is being represented by defence counsel Gregory Gaskin.
The matter is being heard at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court before acting Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry.
At his last attendance, Barker had told the court that he could not understand why matters for other accused that were charged after him were on the verge of conclusion in the Magistrates’ Court and his own is not even being heard.
Magistrate Beharry on that occasion had given him an explanation, and assured him that she would take his concerns into consideration.
Police Inspector Stephen Telford, who is prosecuting in the matter, called Corporal Cleon Benjamin to the witness stand. After the witness was examined by Telford, He was cross-examined by Gaskin.
Next to take to the stand was Senior Superintendent, Winston Cosbert who is attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). He too was examined by Telford and then cross-examined by Gaskin.
At the conclusion of yesterday’s hearing, Gaskin did not complete cross-examining Cosbert, thus he will continue on the next hearing. The matter was adjourned until April 4.
Roselanie Pearl Hall, a US citizen, disappeared on January 30, 2008, reportedly after leaving a hairdressing salon in the city. Six weeks later her decomposed remains were found near Yarrowkabra, off the Soesdyke/ Linden Highway.
