NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A woman who lured a witness against a notorious gang member to his death has had her 35 year sentence cut by five years by the Court of Appeal.

With credit for time spent on remand before her conviction, Caryn Moss will spend 28 years and 10 months behind bars.

Moss was convicted of conspiracy to murder O’Neil Marshall, who was also known as Yardy. Marshall was placed in the witness protection program after he agreed to testify in the abetment to murder case of a gang member.

He was murdered between April 30, 2016 and May 1, 2016. His bullet-riddled and partially burned body was found in a car in the parking lot of the former City Market Food Store on Market Street.

Moss admitted that she picked up Marshall and parked the car through Yorkshire Street after being asked to set up Marshall by gang members.

She left Marshall in the car, which had the child safety locks deployed, and the handles removed, before she went to her godfather’s house on the pretext of using the phone.

The Privy Council ordered the Court of Appeal to consider that Moss acted under a degree of coercion when she took part in the murder conspiracy.
