Two face court for solicitation to commit murder

A Clarendon man and a Manchester woman, charged with solicitation to commit murder, will appear in the Mandeville Resident Magistrate's Court tomorrow.

When Marvin Morris and Angella Butler of Spaldings and Porus, respectively, appeared in court on February 14, Morris said he went to Richmond to snuff out the life of banking executive, Glenroy Griffiths.

He said that when Griffiths arrived home he saw that he had company in the vehicle, but that the company were two angels. He said he became nervous and could not carry out the act and had to confess to the would-be victim why he was there.

When he was arrested by the Spaldings police in November last year, Morris told the police that he went to kill the banker, who is also an elder at a church in Manchester, but when he saw the angels he fell to his knees and started to cry. He said the angels told him he could not harm the church leader.

The contracted killer reportedly asked the elder to pray for him before he was taken to the police station where he confessed his intentions.
