(Republican American) Connecticut, USA – A Guyanese man lost a last-ditch effort for a new trial Monday in Waterbury Superior Court. He now faces life in prison when he’s sentenced on Friday.
A jury convicted Parasurama Rabindranauth, 28, of murder in January after a prosecutor argued he had shot 38-year-old Michael Sembhudyal to death while the two were in a Baldwin Street apartment in 2009.
The jury took about an hour and half to return its verdict, but Rabindranauth’s attorney, Matthew DiVito, argued Monday that Judge Juliette Crawford had improperly instructed its members before they began deliberations.
Before juries begin to discuss a case to reach a verdict, judges will give them the definitions of the charges the defendant faces. In Rabindranauth’s case, he faced murder, but his attorneys wanted the jury to consider lesser offenses, such as manslaughter and negligent homicide, if they cleared him of that crime.
