Court Dismisses Appeal In Murder Case

November 8, 2021

The Court of Appeal has dismissed an appeal from Katrina Burgess and Cleveland Rogers, who were convicted of the 2006 murder of Marcus Gibbings.

The court ruling noted that Katrina Burgess and Cleveland Rogers were convicted of the premeditated murder of Marcus Gibbings and “sentenced to life imprisonment, with a recommendation that they each serve 25 years before being eligible to be considered for parole. ”

“The appellants are half siblings. The events with which this case is concerned took place in October 2006; Burgess had been in a volatile relationship with the Deceased,” the ruling stated, adding that they had cohabited in an apartment in Pembroke, but the relationship had come to an end, and both had moved out.

Mr Gibbings was found dead in October 2006, having been fatally stabbed and “the case for the prosecution was that he was killed by Rogers, at the behest of Burgess, who, although not present in the apartment at the time of the murder, had lured the Deceased there on a pretext.”
