Freed man says sorry
“LOOKING?BACK?AT?my actions, I am very remorseful. I would like to apologise to the victim’’s family and the society.”
With these words, Carlisle Carson Payne walked out the court a free man, 24 years after he was sent to prison for killing police constable Marlon Marville.
He was one of two men released yesterday by the Court of Appeal after lengthy prison terms.
The other freed man was Nolan McDonald Connell, who was 16 years old when he was found guilty of manslaughter by virtue of diminished responsibility. Gloria Blanche died at Connell’’s hands in March 1989.
