On March 16, 2009, Deshawn Stoutt was convicted by a High Court jury of murdering Godwin Cato, who was shot to death on Jan. 25, 2007 outside Johnny’s Bar in Fat Hogs Bay. Mr. Stoutt was sentenced to life in prison.

In a decision issued in November and published on the court’s website last week, three justices from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal upheld the verdict and sentence, though they allowed that, under the Parole Act, Mr. Stoutt may ask the High Court to set a date for when he’ll be eligible for parole.
