A July 15 trial date has been set for a United States citizen who is charged with the murder of his estranged wife in Seaview district in St Elizabeth five years ago.

Henry Toppin, a 57-year-old analyst of a Florida address in the USA, appeared in the St Elizabeth Circuit Court last week.

He is charged with the February 15, 2019 murder of 49-year-old Moy-Lyn Williams-Toppin at her home in Seaview district in the breadbasket parish.

When the case was mentioned in court, Chief Justice Bryan Sykes set the date, following which Toppin’s attorney indicated that his client was eager to have the case tried.

The allegations are that about 6:45 am on February 15, 2019, Williams-Toppin was leaving her home in her motor vehicle when she was shot by her husband, who fled the scene after the shooting.

She was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Five days later, her husband was arrested and formally charged with murder.
