The testimony of Corporal Jeffery James brought a close to the case for the prosecution in the Sherman Webb murder trial.
Corporal James was the last of 13 witnesses.
He told the court that he meticulously dug out the skeletal remains at River Clear in 2010, and recorded the statements given by the accused when he was first picked up in relation to that matter.
Accused Sherman Webb surprised the court when he decided to take to the witness stand where he could be cross examined by prosecution and the jury.
Webb swore on the Bible that the details he was about to give was the truth.
His account was lengthy and detailed, in terms of what he said transpired between him and the deceased Corey Poleon.
However, Justice Birnie Stephenson Brookes warned the media against reporting the content of Webb’s testimony until after the verdict, to avoid prejudicing members of the jury.
Addresses to the jury and the verdict will be done on Friday at the Roseau High Court.
