Man sentenced to death for the double murder of a mother and her 11-year-old daughter

A man who shot and killed a woman and her daughter in West Palm Beach has been sentenced to death.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge, Cheryl Caracuzzo on Thursday sentenced Marlin Joseph for the Dec. 28, 2017, murders of Kaladaa Crowell, 36, and her 11-year-old daughter, Kyra Inglett.

“There can be nothing more terrifying for a child than knowing that someone has just shot their mother multiple times and now was coming after them,” Caracuzzo said. “There is no doubt that this panic-stricken little girl experienced a level of terror that no child or no one should ever have to endure.”

In February, a jury of six men and six women found Joseph guilty and unanimously recommended capital punishment.

On Dec. 28, 2017, police say Joseph shot Kaladaa Crowell, 36, several times at a home their families shared on Third Street in West Palm Beach after a heated argument about her daughter’s attitude. As she pleaded for help, he shot her again in the head.

Investigators also revealed that he chased her 11-year-old daughter, Kyra Inglett, out of the home as she fled and shot her five times, including three times in the head.

Joseph, 29, received the death penalty for both murders, and 15 years in prison for the possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, court records show.

After the sentence was imposed, the 29-year-old Jospeh looked back at his family in silence.

Once Caracuzzo left her bench, Crowell’s mother, Lajunia Crowell, wailed while grabbing onto her husband, Kenneth.

Outside the courtroom, Crowell’s mother, Lajunia Crowell thanked prosecutors Adrienne Ellis, Richard Clausi Jr. and Jo Wilensky, the city of West Palm Beach and others including Kyra’s Girl Scout troop and Kaladaa’s college, Bethune-Cookman University.

“All of the support you’ve given to our family over these last three years, it helped us to get through it,” she said, her voice still shaking.

10 government officials demanding bribes from me – American Investor

An American Businessman and Managing Director of Alafei Foods Company Limited, Claude D Convisser, has alleged that between eight to ten government officials are demanding bribes from him.


According to him, many businesses in Ghana do not survive for the long term because they spend huge sums of money to pay bribes before they get assistance to develop.

He added that the slow growth of Ghana’s economy is linked to the continuous demand of bribes by people in authority from potential investors.

“We haven’t paid bribes and I must say I’m a very stubborn investor even though you have people in government who keep asking how much is in for them.

Eight to ten officials in this administration have demanded bribes from me,” Mr Convisser said Friday on the Morning Starr.

Mr Convisser added that “the NPP parliamentary candidate of Yendi’s secretary keeps demanding bribe from me.”

The American investor who has lived in the country for the past six and half years indicated that Ghana would have been the lead business country in West Africa but for the continuous demand for bribe.

Mr Convisser applied to set up a soy and vegetable factory in Zugu, a community in the Yendi Municipality of Ghana under the 1D1F to meet the protein and vitamin needs of the Ghana School Feeding Program in the Northern region.

The company, if set up would have employed over 30,000 farmers and supply to the GSFP at a lower cost but authorities have frustrated him and are unwilling to grant him a letter of intent to enable him to secure funds from his sponsors.
