Akim Frank to stand trial for murder

Jean Anglais resident Akim Frank is to stand trial for causing the death of Canadian woman, Linnea Veinotte.

Frank was committed to stand trial for Veinotte’s murder by Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill on Monday after a prolonged Preliminary Inquiry (PI).

The last witness to give evidence in the PI was Trinidadian Pathologist, Professor Hubert Daisley who conducted the autopsy on Vienotte’s body.

The Pathologist provided the court with a detailed account of the extent of injuries, some of which were caused by blunt force trauma.

The 36 year-old Veinotte who resided at Coral Crescent, Lance Aux Epines in the south of the island went missing on Sunday, December 6 while out walking the family dog, Nico.

Police immediately mounted an island-wide search for the Canadian woman who, up to the time of her death, was a teacher at the St. George’s University, and five days later, Veinotte’s partially decomposed body was found at Golf Course, St. George’s.

The Royal Grenada Police Force said that the 26 year-old Frank led the lawmen to a wooded area in Golf Course where he allegedly disposed the body.

Well-placed sources told this newspaper that Frank had told close family members of his involvement in the missing Canadian woman and they passed on the information to police investigators.
