Accused murderer Veron Primus is back into custody after escaping from Her Majesty’s Prison in Kingstown on Tuesday.
A police source told iWitness News that Primus turned himself in to police, accompanied by lawyer Jomo Thomas.
The circumstances surrounding the escape remain unclear.
However, it comes at a time when a prison officer told iWitness News that there is a serious shortage of staff at Her Majesty’s Prison in Kingstown.
Primus, 32, is awaiting trial on a charge that between Nov. 12 and 13, 2015 at Arnos Vale, with malice aforethought, he caused the death of Sharleen Greaves by an unlawful act.
Greaves, a 33-year-old real estate agent was found in her office in Arnos Vale with stab wounds to her body.
Primus has also been indicted in the United States in connection with the murder in 2006 of one of his female teenage friends.
Further, Vermont resident Mewanah Hadaway has accused Primus of holding her captive for four months at a home in the South Leeward village and he is awaiting trial on several charges related to that allegation.
