A Harare man who was arrested in connection with the murder of an Eastlea man on 19 November last year had his charges withdrawn before plea after police arrested former police detective Jaison Muvevi on suspicion he was the one who killed the man.
Nyasha Eusen had his case withdrawn before plea by Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi after spending two months in remand prison.
The State on Monday, 23 January told the court that they are withdrawing the matter before plea for lack of evidence.
Allegations were that on 19 November 2022, at around 0900 hours Eusen was in the company of the deceased at Clan Court, Eastlea, Harare when they met Muvevi.
While there, Muvevi withdrew his pistol and shot the deceased Nyarai Round once on the head for no apparent reason.
Eusen tried to run away but was caught and Muvevi bundled into his Toyota Allion.
It is alleged that Muvevi, in the company of two other unknown men, drove his vehicle to Huruyadzo shopping centre in Chitungwiza.
Eusen reportedly then managed to later escape.
Muvevi was arrested in Mozambique on 16 January this year after he had killed three people, including police inspector Maxwell Hove on 13 January. | NewsDay
