Dorian Dailey

After deliberating for 1 hour and 48 minutes a nine-member jury returned with a not guilty verdict against Dorian Dailey for murder, but guilty of manslaughter.

The 29-year-old Grand Fond man was on trial for the murder of his father 62-year-old Maurice Murry Dailey.
Maurice sustained multiple injuries to his head and neck inflicted upon him by his then 23-year-old son. Following the incident on January 9, 2017, Maurice was admitted to the then Princess Margaret Hospital until his death on February 21, 2017.
Following a seven-day trial, the prosecution closed its case on May 23, 2023, after calling 11 witnesses to the stand.

    No doubt the defendant is a member of the Labour Party. Remember what the leader said, NO Law and NO constitution…

    So what are they charging Satan for? We know he comes to steal and he has stolen billions from us.
    We know Satan comes to kill and has killed already
    We know he is a liar and is tired of deceiving the people with his lies. So nobody charging Satan?

    Where I’m against the death of the father.
    I support the jurors on the verdict because if the defense council take this case further this man will be a free man because of the evidence before the court. Why
    I gave the investigating officer wrong and not only but the police force and the the DPP office. The investigating officer should be guided. Why was the blood on the clothes and samples around were not tested to strengthen the case but coming with camera and take photos. Same on the prosecution. The defence need to appeal.
