Accused asked judge who are the persons she conspired with?
Nassau, Bahamas — The long arm of the law has caught up with a woman this time in the death of Andrea Carroll from Long Island.
You would remember how we reported Carroll, a webshop employee, was found tied and dead in her home. Bahamas Press can now report yesterday, Daphanie Knowles, 47, stood before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt accused of murder charge under section 291 (1a) of the Penal Code chapter 84.
Knowles’ charge could deliver a penalty of death if she is found guilty.
She stands accused of the horrid incident, which played out on Long Island on November 28 and 29, 2014. Andrea Carroll was discovered in her home; bound hand and feet.
Prosecutors alleged that Knowles, along with others, for some 58 days, conspired together to rob Carroll of some $68,000, which belonged to Bowe’s Web Games Ltd.
The accused looking confused as the charges were being read before her asked the Magistrate, “Ma’am, who I conspired with and where’s the money I supposedly took from her?”
Knowles will again appear in the Magistrates Court on March 31 for the case to be forwarded to Supreme Court. She was remanded to prison, however, was advised that she can apply for bail in the Supreme Court.
