Aniki Jones, the man who was accused of killing the estranged husband of his fiancée in 2013, was on Tuesday freed due to insufficient evidence.
The matter was called before Justice Nareshwar Harnanan, who upheld the defence’s “no case submission.”
At his arraignment earlier this month, Jones of Sophia, Greater Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the charge instituted for the chopping death of forklift operator Carl Garnett of Section B, Sophia.
The killing occurred on December 15, 2013, at Lamaha Springs, Georgetown.
According to the Police Garnett had called the Jones’ home to speak with the child that he shared with his estranged wife.
However, Jones was said to have refused the man’s request, which angered Garnett who then armed himself with a cutlass and confronted Jones at his home in Lamaha Springs.
An altercation ensued during which Garnett ended up dead with chop wounds.
Jones, however, denied that he murdered the man.
