Two days after a minibus driver allegedly confessed to killing his ex-girlfriend during an argument, he was yesterday charged and remanded to prison for murder.
Thirty-nine-year-old Lauric Fiffee also known as “Shaquan” of Westminster, West Bank Demerara, appeared before Magistrate Crystal Lambert in the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s Court.
He was not allowed to plead to the indictable charge which alleged that on March 31, last, at Westminster, West Bank Demerara, he murdered Rosemary Rudder.
He was remanded to prison and was instructed to make his next court appearance on June 14.
According to reports, the dead woman, 32-year-old Rosemary Rudder, a caterer of Eccles, East Bank Demerara, had visited Fiffee, at his Westminster, West Bank Demerara home around 22:30 hrs on the day in question. She had shared a relationship with him.
It was reported that on arrival at his home, she saw him in the company of another woman. Rudder and Fiffee then got into a heated argument which resulted into a scuffle.
It is alleged that during the scuffle, the minibus driver choked Rudder and she collapsed to the floor.
The man subsequently left the woman lying motionless in the house and went to make a report at the police station.
The police then visited the scene and took Rudder to the West Demerara Regional Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
A post-mortem examination performed on Rudder revealed that she died as a result of compression to the neck consistent with choking and compounded with blunt trauma to the head.
