A man has pleaded guilty to 13 counts stemming from allegations in four separate cases in the Manchester division.

On November 14, Deandre Grant pleaded guilty in the Home Circuit Court before Justice Leighton Pusey to a Voluntary Bill of Indictment containing 13 counts proffered by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The ODPP says based on the evidence provided, Grant’s offences occurred in four separate incidents in Manchester.

These include the murder of 21-year-old Soneil Muschette on December 8, 2022; the murder of Catherine Matthews and the wounding of her common-law spouse in March; and two separate incidents of assault in March and July this year.

The ODPP says evidence revealed that a firearm seized from Grant and other people by officers in the Westmoreland Division was featured in all four incidents.

Mr. Grant will be sentenced on December 7 in the Home Circuit Court.

He’s represented by attorney, Paul Gentles. 

The Crown was represented by Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Andrea Martin-Swaby.

The ODPP is commending the Manchester and Westmoreland police for a comprehensive and detailed investigation and ballistic analysis.
