The crown offered no further evidence in the case.
The prosecution cannot prove that Powell was on the scene when Kingston College student Khajeel Mais was shot.
Mais was shot dead on July 1, 2011 while he was travelling in a taxi in Havendale to meet up with friends to attend a fete at the Meadowbrook High School. The killer was believed to be driving a BMW X6 sp
orts utility vehicle. Powell’s Belgrade Loop, St Andrew, home was subsequently raided by the police and two BMW X6 vehicles were seized.
However, the case began to crumble last week when star witness Wayne Wright, the taxi driver, said he did not see the shooter and said that cops asked him to lie that he saw the killer.
