Shurland Mohan, of Albouystown, Georgetown, was yesterday remanded to prison for the murder of Ryan English – who died at the Georgetown Public Hospital on Sunday- two days after the victim was reportedly attacked and chopped by Mohan and his son at a Backdam in Port Kaituma, Region One.
Mohan, 44, a father of six, was not required to plead to the indictable charge read to him by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Reports are that last Friday, English and a man, believed to be Mohan, were imbibing alcohol at a shop in Port Kaituma when an argument ensued, which later resulted in English sustaining a chop wound to the head. Kaieteur News understands that the two men had a previous disagreement and while consuming alcohol, they were taunting each other about the issue.
This resulted in Mohan and his son attacking English. It was previously reported that police are trying to locate the son, who is now on the run.
According to reports, English was taken to the landing by some of the camp workers after he was rushed to the Port Kaituma Hospital before being transferred to the Georgetown Hospital. He reportedly died during surgery. A post mortem examination performed on his remains on Monday revealed that he died from haemorrhage due to multiple incision wounds.
Police are said to be investigating the disappearance of four ounces of gold that was allegedly stolen from the now dead man’s pocket.
The accused was represented by Attorney Sonia Parag.
The Chief Magistrate transferred the matter to the Matthews Ridge Magistrate’s Court for October 31.
