ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – US Virgin Islands national and resident of Anegada, Kenny Francis is likely to know his fate for the October 6, 2012 incident which had left a man suffering stab wounds.

This news site understands that both the prosecution and defense have closed their case in the trial and the lawyers are expected to make their closing arguments which are to be followed by the Judge’s guidance to the jury body. This is likely for tomorrow November 10, 2014.

Francis is accused of being involved in the stabbing of a man at his apartment in the Settlement on Anegada on October 6, 2012. He is represented by attorney at law Anthea Smith.

The accused was previously charged in conjunction with another man with aggravated burglary but this was later changed to attempted murder.

Court records indicate that Francis entered the house in Anegada and attempted to murder Marcos Huggins.

Preliminary inquiries conducted by officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) indicated that both men entered the victim's apartment on Anegada through a window during the early hours of the morning. On exiting the premises, the assailants inflicted a stab wound to the lower abdomen of the victim while he was asleep.
