The preliminary inquiry into the murder of cattle farmer Shafeek Bacchus continued yesterday and Christine Barlow, the sister-in-law of the deceased was the only witness to testify.

Barlow gave her evidence-in-chief before Magistrate Adrian Thompson and both attorneys-at-law Compton Richardson and Vic Puran declined cross-examination.

The PI will continue today.

Puran is representing Ashton King while Richardson is representing Shawn Hinds. State Counsel Simone Morris is appearing in the capacity of prosecutor.

King, Hinds and Mark Thomas were charged on January 16 with the murder of Shafeek Bacchus on January 5 as he sat outside his Princes Street home. Thomas called 'Kerzorkee' of Auby's Wine Bar died at the Georgetown Hospital in February under mysterious conditions.
