Two former employees of slain Brazilian gold miner Nandinho De Costa Souza have been charged with murdering him two years ago.
Phillip Williams and his relative, Fidel Williams of Rock View, Essequibo River, were both remanded when they appeared in the Bartica Magistrate’s Court yesterday. A release stated that they are to return to court today.
Nandinho De Costa Sousa, called ‘Vandam,’ of Boa Vista, Brazil, was found with his throat slit in his Fish Creek, Cuyuni River camp on February 9, 2016.
The corpse was next to a sluice box, and a quantity of gold was missing. The victim, who reportedly owned two land dredges, was reportedly last seen washing down the sluice box with one of the men suspected of killing him.
Police had stated that they had obtained confessions from two suspects. One of the men was arrested last week at Goshen, Essequibo River. He had reportedly implicated a relative, who is currently incarcerated at the Mazaruni Prison, serving a sentence for robbery under a fictitious name.
Prior to this, police had issued a wanted bulletin for Fidel Williams.
