Woman Tells Winnipeg Murder Trial Drugs Blossomed Into Romance

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 16 May, 2019

    WINNIPEG — One of five women who lived with a man now accused of first-degree murder testified she met him buying methamphetamine but it soon turned romantic.


    Perez Cleveland, who is 46, has pleaded not guilty in the death of Jennifer Barrett, whose body was found in a barrel behind their Winnipeg home in December 2016.


    Jessica Reid, who is 36, has told Cleveland's trial that he got jealous and one night she woke up with him pointing a gun at her.


    Court has already heard that Cleveland controlled the women through abuse, drugs and surveillance.


    The Crown says he tortured and killed Barrett, who was 42, because he thought she was cheating on him.


    Reid was the last woman to join Cleveland and what prosecutors have described as his domestic partners.


    She was also the first woman to talk with police.
