      @ Bull$****, Norford is now a prisoner. He was not in prison when Lettsome got shot.

      There are some differences between conspiracy and joint enterprise. If the DPP charged for conspiracy, she must have evidence to prove that there was an agreement among the offenders. The conviction would not be for the resultant offence (murder), it would be for the agreement (the conspiracy). For joint enterprise, the DPP would only need to prove that each of the parties played a role in the crime and the conviction would be for the resultant offence and not their roles. For example, if one offender provided the weapon to another who then ends up killing the victim, both would be tried for the murder which is the result of their joint enterprise. I believe the DPP has evidence to prove joint enterprise, not conspiracy.

    Something just dont seems right here. I hope that I'm wrong. When Kemo got murdered, Norford should have been an inmate at the prison. Did someone allow him to come out and reenter the prison as it is said to be the practice. Food for thoughts

      He can be charged if he was in any way implicated. murder is a text, a phone call away, etc. Phones are normal on that hill. And Vernon was a neighbor to this dude while he was up there for murder himself. murders like the same company. You got to understand you don't have to pull the trigger to get a murder charge even when a knife is involved. You just have to be involved in some manner, even verbally. That led to someone's else demise. So it's looks like the police did some homework on this dude. Possibly some leaked information. Honestly, once you associate with them, s.k brothers, your life salty

      In other words, this man was implicated in the crime. He didn't have to be there physically. Hope you understand.

    Certain prisoners walk the streets at night to commit crimes or meet up with females. That jail ain't fully secure

    @Bullsh****, it is possible for him to be charge for murder. At one point all three people was in prison together, they could have conspired for those that was released to commit the murder, so as long as the crime of murder was complete, it is no more conspiracy so all three of them will then be charge jointly for murder. Then hell brake loose to hear who will take the blame for the crime

    When common sense to expensive. He didn't have to be present at the crime to be charged. If four organized it and only one did the actual crime the rest have to answer regardless.

    You all are just dumb,these comments is like kids are thinking because they can't uerstand so young. People can call hits wherever they at. A silent person doesn't hold or pull a trigger. They arrange all puppets to do their dirty work. A gun man to me are punks. They can't fight that's why they use a gun. Real bitches to me. I know gunman who got beat up nuff time.

    Please don't keep these people here committing more and more crimes. Make it mandatory for the prison to your homeland. Let's get real serious about crime.
