Denvoy DomingoOn Monday, April 23, 28-year-old Denvoy Domingo was acquitted of the 2007 murder of 27-year-old Jermaine Smart. On August 29, 2007 Smart, also known as San San, was standing at the entrance of Fuller’s Alley when two men approached him and one opened fire. He was hit multiple times, once to the right ankle, right inner thigh, right elbow, right arm and three times to the back. Police investigations led to the arrest of Domingo.

In front of Justice Herbert Lord in the Supreme Court, prosecutor Triennia Young’s case fell flat when she could not get the information she needed out of her three main witnesses. The prosecution based its case on information provided by three members of the Ghost Town Gang, Kendis Flowers, Jervis Valencia and Joseph Panting, that Domingo was one of two men who went to execute Smart. However, in court the three men had amnesia. When Young presented their police statement, they either denied doing so, claimed that they did not remember giving police such a statement or that the signature on the statements was not theirs.Young closed her case after calling her three main suspects and conceded that she could not prove the murder.

Domingo’s attorney, Dickie Bradley, made a no case submission saying that of the three main witnesses called by the crown, no one said that his client was the shooter who killed Smart and as a result his client does not have a case to answer to. Justice Herbert Lord agreed with Bradley and directed the 12 member jury of 7 women and 5 men to acquit Domingo of the crime of murde.
