NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Convicted child killer Kohfe Goodman says officials at the prison have breached his constitutional rights.

Goodman, also known as Elvardo Ferguson, is serving a 55-year sentence for the murder of Marco Archer in 2011.

Marco was found murdered five days after he failed to return to his home at Brougham Street after going to an area store for candy on September 23, 2011.

His naked body was found wrapped in a sheet in bushes behind the Cable Beach condominium where Goodman lived.

Goodman, who’s representing himself, claims that officials violated his rights by hindering his attempts to appeal his sentence to the Privy Council, which denied him leave to appeal in 2022.

Goodman believes the country’s final court ruled against him because he was unable to send court transcripts to a London-based lawyer.

Justice Renae McKay will hear further arguments in the matter in August.
