GUYANA – THREE men were sentenced to 16 years imprisonment by Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul for the robbery and home invasion of Land Court Judge Nicola Pierre and her husband Mohammed Chan. Dameion Millington, 22, of Lot 118 Caesar Street, Agricola; Nicholas Narine, 18, also of Caesar Street, Agricola and Warren McKenzie, 22, of Lot 18 Brutus Street, Agricola, were all charged with robbery under arms and felonious wounding of Pierre and Chand.

Millington, Narine and McKenzie were sentenced to eight years for the armed robbery charge and eight years for wounding the duo. The men broke down in tears when the magistrate told them their sentences would run consecutively. Prior to the sentencing, the magistrate asked the defendants if they had anything to say; in response, the men denied committing the offences and proclaimed their innocence.
In passing the sentences, Magistrate Ally-Seepaul said she took into consideration the amount of time the men had been on remand and the fact that they have no previous convictions.
The magistrate also considered the evidence which revealed that they were all part of the crime and that they had aided and abetted each other; the serious nature of the offence, since the lives of the virtual complainants had been threatened; the high value of the items they stole; the brutality and use of a firearm.
The matter was prosecuted by Attorney Nigel Hughes, who was hired by the office of Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
On June 17, the magistrate had found two other men not guilty of the crime. They are Premnauth Samaroo and Anthony David. The charges stated that on July 9, 2015 at Montrose, East Coast Demerara, being in the company of three others and being armed with a gun, they robbed the victims of a safe containing US$7,000, five wristwatches, a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, a wedding ring, four Oakley sunglasses and one brown leather wallet, totalling over $ 2.6M.
They were also accused of feloniously wounding Pierre and her husband and discharging a loaded firearm at Roy Peters, with intent to maim, disable, disfigure or cause him grievous bodily harm. Pierre sustained a broken jaw and other injuries,while her husband received severe injuries to an eye,which he lost as a result.

GUYANA - murder-1

Angry brother hold husband for answers – Photo Kaeuteur News

GUYANA – The lifeless body of a 35-year-old woman was pulled from the Lama Canal in an area called the “Blacka” at the entrance of ‘B’ Field Sophia around 08:00 hrs yesterday, two days after she went missing.
The dead woman has been identified as Natasha Jacobs called “Tasha,” a mother of four, of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
Police sources confirmed that the body bore several marks of violence.
According to reports, the body was discovered by a child, partially submerged amidst a patch of weeds in the “Blacka,” where the residents would normally swim.
At the scene yesterday, residents had assumed that it was the body of the mother of four since she would normally traverse that area.
This was confirmed when one of Jacobs’ brothers went into the black water and turned over the remains. It was then when investigators realized that they were dealing with a clear case of murder and not a drowning.
Jacobs’s face was partially disfigured and her neck appeared to have been broken.
There were several black and blue marks on her skin.
Upon seeing the injuries, the dead woman’s three brothers rushed to her partner’s home and launched an assault on the man who appeared to be in his early 40s.
For more than a year Jacobs’ partner lived a short distance from where her body was discovered.
He was heard crying for help but the residents too joined in and beat him.
They circled him and the punches he received were countless. They even threw bricks in his face.
“No I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything. Please leave me, please,” the man pleaded.
Police officers were forced to fire a shot to scare the crowd away.
He was eventually taken away in handcuffs.
Natasha Jacobs’ mother, Pamela, told this newspaper that she last saw her daughter alive Saturday night when she left her home.

“Me and she left Festival city and I tell her leh we go to Lamaha Gardens by me but she refused. She said she going by she man and I begged her to come with me but she didn’t. That was the last time I see her,” the mother said.
She explained that her daughter complained to her numerous times of being beaten by the suspect.
“She said that he threatened to kill her. She does come and say that he beat her and all over her skin does have black and blue marks,” the older Jacobs said.
The mother admitted that her daughter was suffering from mental illness.
“When she gave birth to her first child (11 years ago) she started suffering from this sickness. She does be in and out of her senses,” the mother said.
She added that she lost one of her sons, Joshua Jacobs, last year in a freak accident.
The woman said that she now has nine surviving children.
Neighbours of Natasha Jacobs’ partner said that the only bad thing the suspect did was consume alcohol on a daily basis.
“He did not kill her. Her brothers were wrong to that man. When all of them leave her to sleep on the roads, that man picked her up and take her to his home. He is small in size; it is impossible for him to kill that woman,” a neighbour said.
Investigations are ongoing. – Kaeuteur News
