Anglin faces murder retrial

| 06/11/2014

(CNS): A West Bay man who was acquitted of killing 4-year-old Jeremiah Barnes at a local gas station in February 2010 will be retried. Devon Anglin is now expected to return to the dock for a second trial for murder some time next year, when the crown will once again attempt to prove that he was the masked gunman who opened fire at the Barnes family car at the Hell Road gas station in West Bay, shooting the child. The appeal court allowed the crown’s appeal against the 2011 verdict of a visiting judge as it found he was wrong not to consider all of the other evidence when he opted to dismiss the testimony from the child's parents, Dorlisa and Andy Barnes, who had both identified Anglin as the shooter.
