Would-be murderer barber to United’s Lingard
The “double life” of would-be murderer Jahmico Trott has been featured in a British newspaper.
The Daily Mail said the 30-year-old gunman, jailed for 25 years last week for attempted murder and use of a firearm, was a barber to English Premier League football stars.
The article also said that Trott claimed to be a close friend of Manchester United and England star Jesse Lingard and was photographed cutting former star Andrew Cole’s hair.
It said: “A barber to Premier League football stars has been jailed for 25 years in Bermuda after his double life as a ruthless killer was finally exposed.
“Jahmico Trott, 30, has claimed to be best friends with Manchester United and England star Jesse Lingard and was pictured on social media cutting former star Andrew Cole’s hair in his Manchester salon.”
The article, which showed images that appeared to be from Trott’s Instagram account, added that he boasted of his friendship with Lingard on social media and uploaded videos featuring the 24-year-old footballer on his Instagram and Facebook pages.
Trott was sentenced to 15 years for attempted murder and ten years for the use of a firearm by Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves at a hearing last week.
He was convicted of both offences, which took place on Mother’s Day last year, at an earlier trial.
His conviction came after an earlier acquittal on a murder charge at the Old Bailey in London in 2016.
Trott was accused of killing Oliver Tetlow but he was acquitted after a witness provided an alibi for the night of the murder.
Trott was also acquitted of the attempted murder of David Godwin, who was shot in the back while he walked outside Art Mel’s Spicy Dicy restaurant in Pembroke in 2010.
Mr Justice Greaves ordered a Supreme Court jury to find him not guilty in 2011 after Mr Godwin refused to attend court and another witness said he could not recall the incident.
