The man who is accused stabbing his uncle in law to death at a wake house has been remanded to jail.
Latchman Samaroo, 26, a fishmonger and father of five (including a nine-day old infant ) of Lot 45 Bacchus Street, Rosignol, West Bank Berbice, was on Wednesday remanded to jail by Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs- Marcus when he appeared before her at the Reliance Magistrate’s Court to answer the charge of murder.
Samaroo allegedly murdered his uncle, Surujpaul Ramnarine, 51, of Blairmont Village, West Bank Berbice on Saturday December 13, last, at Rosignol.
Ramnarine was allegedly stabbed in the vicinity of his chest around 12:10 hrs on Saturday morning. The stabbing stemmed from an ongoing family feud.
The incident took place at a wake which was being held for Ramnarine’s mother at Rosignol Village, West Bank Berbice. The woman had recently passed away.
Information gathered revealed that the suspect who lived where the incident happened and the deceased were embroiled in an argument earlier in relation to family issues and the death of the woman.
The man who was armed with a knife had earlier threatened to harm Ramnarine if he continued with his behaviour.
After the argument continued, the man allegedly stabbed Ramnarine in the region of the stomach. He then made good his escape.
The wounded man staggered into the yard. He subsequently collapsed and was picked up and rushed to the Fort Wellington Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
On Monday, Samaroo gave himself up by walking into the Blairmont Police Station.
The matter has been transferred to the Blairmont Magistrate Court where it is expected to continue on December 22.
