Looking calm and somewhat detached, Terry Cassius Seale appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No. 2 yesterday where he was charged with the murder of Moreta Forde and arson of her house.
Dressed in a blue polo-type shirt with pink stripes and oversized blue jean trousers with no belt, the slightly bearded diminutive Seale was brought into court handcuffed, minutes after the court ended its session for the day.
Magistrate Deborah Holder had to return to the Bench and Seale stood before her at exactly 2:30 p.m.
The tractor operator, of 27 Groves Crescent, St George, was not required to plead to either of his charges. The first, that between October 30 and 31, without lawful excuse, he destroyed Forde’s house by fire, intending to destroy the property, or that he was reckless as to whether it would be destroyed.
