…admits to killing a man while on the run
A prisoner, who was on the run for the past two years, and who was recaptured last week, was sentenced to two years jail by Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson.
Ronald Daniels, 28, called “Black Boy”, of Bethany, Essequibo Coast, had this additional sentence added to the five years that he had been serving before his escape.
While the sentence will run concurrently, Daniels could be in jail for even longer. The man admitted in open that he “killed a man” on the Essequibo Coast since he escaped from prison.
Daniels, on December 12, 2006, escaped from the Mazaruni Prisons.
According to Police Prosecutor Sherwin Matthews, on the day of the escape, Daniels was at a construction site when he managed to “scale the western” fence and make good his escape.
On December 13, last, the police conducted a search in the Queenstown, Essequibo area and the defendant was found.
When asked by the presiding magistrate if he had anything to say, Daniels said that he was sentenced to five years for “break and enter”.
He added that the main reason he escaped was because his family was “not visiting” him.
