Drama ensued in a courtroom, which made the sitting judge angrily pronounce a ‘air verdict, on an unruly murder suspect charging him with contempt of court.
The 32-year-old man, Basim, and his 3 accomplices were standing trial, having been charged for murder, carjacking and unlawful possession of weapons for unlawful purposes. While the other three were still at large, Basim was the only one on ground to be tried on that particular day.
According to multiple reports, Basim and his accomplices had attacked 30 year old Dustin and his 27-year-old wife, Jamie, in a bid to snatch their car.
It was reported that Dustin was trying to protect his wife from the criminals, before he was shot dead by one of them, while his wife was unhurt. This heart, wrenching story was narrated by Dustin’s grieving widow, during the hearing of the case.
Jamie explained that after the shot rang out, she turned to find her husband lying in a pool of his own blood. She claimed to have ran to where he was gasping for air on the ground, his eyes fixed on her, she cradled him in her arms, while screaming for him to stay with her, as he painfully took his last breath.
As the widow narrated her ordeal that day, Basim was caught wearing an insolent, self-satisfied and scornful smile on his face, a jaw dropping show of him not feeling any remorse for the pain he and his accomplices have caused the bereaved Jamie. Why he would find the grief of a bereaved widow amusing, was something no one could explain.
However, as fate would have it, the sitting judge, Judge Ravin caught him smirking. The shallow act of insolence shown by the suspect, got the judge very angry and he spat six words at him, which caused Basim’s insolent grin to fade immediately.
Footage from the hearing showed that the judge took the case personally, and he told Basim to smile all he wanted, as he was going to be smiling in prison for the rest of his life, he was also denied parole till he had spent a minimum of sixty – eight years and nine months in incarceration.
Even with the weight of the verdict, the family of the deceased were not consoled, as they explained that no verdict, no matter how grave it was, could bring back their dead.
