Another murder accused has been freed by the Court over the absence of evidence tying the suspect to the crime.
28-year-old Phillip Suffrein was one of three persons charged with the 2017 murder of 89-year-old Constance Fraser and 77-year-old Phyllis Caesar.
Two other men have already been found guilty for the double murder and are currently behind bars serving life in prison.
The trial for the 28-year suspect Phillip Suffrein was called this week and the Prosecution admitted to the Court that there is no evidence linking the man to the crime, although he has been behind bars on remand for the past five years awaiting trial.
With the admission of the Prosecution team, the jury was asked to return a not guilty verdict in the case and Suffrein was set free.
On the 3rd October 2013, the bodies of the two elderly women were found in their South Road home. The two were strangled to death.
Investigators made three arrests in the case.
The other two suspects, Christopher Khan and Stephen Andrews admitted to the crime when their cases were called and were each sentenced to life in prison.
The third suspect had always maintained his innocence while claiming that he was wrongfully accused.
