Murder-suspect leaves island after acquittal

St. Maarten – Anthony Ray Spencer was put in immigration detention after the Common Court of Justice acquitted him last week Wednesday of the murder on Christian Lloyd in January 2010. Spencer, 43, was serving a 20-year sentence for the murder. He spent more than 35 months in prison after his arrest on February 25, 2010. Spencer has in the meantime left the country.

Solicitor-general Mr. Taco Stein said that, while no definite decision has been taken about cassation against the acquittal at the Supreme Court, he tends towards letting it go. “Cassation against an acquittal is extremely complicated,” he said.
