Two men were yesterday remanded to prison for the murder of 13-year-old Daveand Sanchar, whose body was found with a chop wound to the head on Sunday last, at Plantain Walk, Triumph, East Coast Demerara.
Kevin Sahoy, 20, of 64 Agriculture Road, Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, and Raymond Wong, 27, of 110 Agriculture Road, Triumph, East Coast Demerara, were not required to plead to the indictable charge of murder read to them by Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul.
Police Prosecutor David Goodridge told the court that on the day in question, the 13-year-old and the two accused were at a wedding house in the area. He said Sanchar became annoyed at Sahoy dancing with his aunt and subsequently left the wedding house for home.
According to Goodridge, Sanchar returned with a cutlass and an argument ensued between him and the accused, which resulted in Sahoy lashing him to the head with a piece of wood. Goodridge added that Wong was the one who chopped the teenager to his head with a cutlass.
Goodridge stated that Sanchar was picked up and transported to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Attorneys for the accused told the Magistrate that their clients have no pending or previous matter before the courts.
Prosecutor Goodridge indicated that investigations into the matter have been completed, and also, advice was sought from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Sahoy, a mason, and Wong, an electrician, were instructed to return to the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court on September 13, for disclosure of statements.
According to reports, Sanchar was at a function in the village and was involved in an altercation with some men over a female. It was reported that Sanchar left the celebrations and returned with a cutlass. A further argument ensued and it was alleged that one of the men took away the cutlass from the teen and dealt him a chop to the head, while another man gave him a severe beating with a stick.
