Leroy Headley back in court for first time since pandemic began
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Leroy Headley, the man accused of killing his girlfriend in South Burlington in 2018 and then fleeing to Jamaica, was back in court Wednesday, the first time since the pandemic shut down the courts in March.
Police say Headley killed Anako “Annette” Lumumba in May of 2018. He was the subject of a lengthy manhunt and was eventually found back in February hiding out in his native Jamaica.
Headley retained counsel to defend him against the murder charge in the death of Anako “Annette” Lumumba in 2018. They lived together in South Burlington and shared two children. A public defender is set to defend Headley in a separate sex assault case. Prosecutors say that in 2017 he sexually assaulted two 13-year old girls in a hotel room after giving them alcohol.
