Another man accused of a daylight murder was set free on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 after the office of the DPP was forced to enter a nolle prosequi due to insufficient evidence. In this case, 27-year-old Henry Cornejo learned his fate before Supreme Court judge Collin Williams.

Cornejo was accused of gunning down Marvin Glenford Nunez in front of Saint Ignatius Primary School just after midday on December 7, 2012 as he dropped his stepdaughter to school.

In court, Cornejo was represented by attorney Anthony Sylvester while the prosecution was represented by Kilery Awich. Despite calling 5 formal witnesses in the case on March 20, 2018, Awich had to enter a nolle prosequi due to lack of evidence against Cornejo.

This is the second case of murder that Cornejo has managed to beat. On June 28, 2012, Cornejo was acquitted of the murder of Gilbert Olivera, a resident of George Street. He also managed to walk away from that case after the DPP’s Crown Counsel, represented at the time by Stevanie Duncan, was forced to close the case due to insufficient evidence.
