The man who allegedly shot dead his ex girlfriend outside KFC, Water Street on Old Year’s Night 2013 was Tuesday committed to stand trial for murder by a judge and jury.

The decision was handed down by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry to Jermaine Maynard.

He is accused of the murder of 20 year old Carlissa Matthews two months after they had severed a relationship.

The Preliminary Inquiry, which began on February 10, saw 12 witnesses testifying for the State. Maynard was represented by Attorney-at-Law George Thomas.

He was arrested several days after the offence at Springlands back track shortly before attempting to flee Guyana.
