Monette Walker has been committed to stand trial in the May Criminal Assizes on a charge of Perverting the Court of Justice in connection with the robbery cases against Cadaphy “Jun Jun” Evanson of Briggins.

Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh ruled this week that the evidence provided by the police prosecution at the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court, meets the threshold for committal for trial in the High Court.

The Freetown woman was charged in January last year after she allegedly deliberately gave a false statement to the police about the incidents and Evanson’s whereabouts.

Evanson is awaiting trial for two separate counts of aggravated robbery which he allegedly committed on Christmas Eve in 2017.

In one case he is accused of robbing the owners of Windows and Doors business. In the other case he is accused of robbing two people in Gray’s Farm of their Honda Stream motor car, A50132; a gold wrist watch; a knapsack; a pair of jeans; a pair of Converse sneakers; a gold ID bracelet; a gold chain; two pairs of sandals; and a Samsung mobile phone – among other valuable items.

The alleged victims were at the time seated inside the vehicle on Federation Road when the accused reportedly approached them and robbed them at gunpoint of the listed items.
