Five more witnesses testified at the High Court on Tuesday in the Sherman Webb murder trial.
The witnesses included Magistrate Ossie Lewis who read the depositions of Dr. Wendy Potter, Krystal Rodriguez and Dr. Jeffery Nine taken from a preliminary inquiry into the matter in April 2011.
According to these depositions the skeletal remains found in River Claire belonged to that of the deceased Corey Poleon and signs of injury were clearly visible on the skull and jaw. The Magistrate read the depositions of the professionals since all three are no longer in the jurisdiction to to testify.
Also testifying in the court was Constable Carlisle Scotland. According to the facts presented in the case Webb had confessed to Scotland that he had committed a murder. Scotland explained to the court that the accused said that he trusted him and therefore chose to confess to him.
The matter will continue on Wednesday with Corporal Jeffery James, another state witness.
