Teddy Phillips, an inmate at the Georgetown Prison, was yesterday charged with the murder of 27-year-old labourer Davendra “Nave” Beharry.
Phillips, who was unrepresented, was not required to plead to the indictable charge which was read to him by Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson, yesterday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court. He was remanded to prison and is expected to make another court appearance on November 16.
The Mahaica resident was stabbed to death just one day after he was placed on remand for a larceny charge. He was taken to Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Beharry was accused of stealing spare parts from Chris Auto Sales where he was once employed. A police press release had stated that Beharry was found dead in his prison cell.
It added “investigations had revealed that he was behaving abnormally in his cell located in the social block, when he was attacked by two other inmates and sustained injuries.
Beharry is one of several inmates attacked in prison recently.
