‘No idea’ hubby used cocaine
Brian Mulligan’s widow Jemma Mulligan said he drank alcohol occasionally, but she did not know he used cocaine.
She was giving her testimony via Zoom yesterday in the No. 4 Supreme Court in the murder trial of Michael Oneal Beckles, 62, of 1st Avenue Maxwell Coast Road, Christ Church, who has denied killing the 28-year-old Englishman on June 15, 2014.
Jemma, who is in Ashtead, Epson, Surrey, England, said her late husband was a fibre optic engineer in Barbados, working on a contract for about six weeks with telecommunications giant LIME, and was the father of two children.
While Jemma said a friend of Brian’s identified his body, she subsequently travelled to Barbados for the autopsy and to take her husband back home.
Under cross-examination by defence attorney Mohia Ma’at, Jemma said she married Brian in 2007 after meeting him in 2004, but knew him for 11 years in total. (RA)
