Dates set in Gareau murder case

A long-form preliminary inquiry has been set for 6 August into the charge against Josue Perez-Carrillo, who is accused of murdering Martin Joseph Gareau.

Mr. Gareau’s body was found at his residence in the Bodden Town district on Tuesday morning, 20 May, after the Discovery Day long weekend.

Perez, 28, first appeared in court on 13 June.

On 1 July, Defence Attorney Edward Renvoize asked for the long-form PI, which means that witnesses will give evidence in person rather than have their statements handed in.

Acting Magistrate Valdis Foldats ordered the Crown to provide full disclosure and set 22 July as a mention date to ensure that all papers were served.

Mr. Gareau, 47, was a Canadian national who came to Cayman in October 2004. He worked in the construction industry and lived alone.

At the June court appearance, Perez was described as an unemployed Honduran national (Caymanian Compass, 17 June).
