Three convictions to death in the past week – COURTS IN THE BAHAMAS ARE BEGINNING TO WORK AGAIN!!!
Young Marco Archer and other victims get Justice in a Bahamian Supreme Court today!
Nassau, Bahamas — A ruling handed down in the Supreme Court this afternoon has sentenced Kofhe Goodman to death.
The news breaking now on Bahamas Press confirmed the convicted child killer has been sentenced to die by Justice Bernard Turner this afternoon. This is the 3rd death sentence handed down by the courts in just over one week.
Counsel asked Justice Turner to consider three options: a death sentence, a life sentence or a 15-year prison term.
Justice Tuner went for the ultimate sentence of death and said ‘the ultimate sentence of death’ was considered after examining Goodman’s past history.
Many Bahamians feel that this crime – where the child was violated and burnt beyond recognition – is indeed THE WORST OF THE WORST!
Young Marco Archer went missing back in 2011 after he went to a shop near his home in the inner city. He was a resident of Brougham Street, was then murdered between September 23 and September 28 of 2011. He was a student of the Columbus Primary School at the time.
His lifeless remains were announced to have been discovered by Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade when he arrived at the horrific crime scene. The COP confirmed the discovery of 11-year-old Marco Archer was once of the worst crime scenes he had witnessed in all his days as a police officer. The lifeless body of the child was found in the back of an apartment building on Yorkshire Drive in western New Providence.
Family members feared the worst when Marco went missing over the weekend.
Goodman has had a dangerous criminal record of buggery and murder before. He served 8 years in jail following the death of another young child who was found in a dumpster. Goodman had been released from jail just in December of 2010 and was alleged to have kidnapped and molested other victims.
BP believes a real death sentence would be swiftly conferred if Goodman is released back into society.
