Lawyer's absence prevents trial

Richard Duhaney, who is charged with the death of his wife, Velma, had his case put off again in the St Catherine Circuit Court due to the absence of defence attorney, Valerie Neita- Robertson.

When Duhaney appeared before Justice Marva Mcdonald, the prosecution was told that the eight-year-old murder case could not get off the ground as the attorney was involved in another matter in a Corporate Area court.

It was then agreed that Duhaney's matter will again be mentioned on June 23.

Allegations are that on March 19, 2006, Velma's headless body was found in Waugh Hill, Sligoville, St Catherine.

Investigation by Detective Inspector Derrick Ball led to the arrest and charge of the husband for his wife's death.

He has made numerous court appearance since and has maintained his innocence throughout.
