One month after 21-year-old Rick Sewcharran, was released on $500,000 bail in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Sasia Adams, the Prosecution’s file is still incomplete. Sewcharran, who hails from Diamond, East Bank Demerara, was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
He was not required to plead to the charge, which stated that on June 10, he unlawfully killed 19-year-old Sasia Adams. Adams formerly of East Street, Georgetown, had been employed at the Princess Ramadan Hotel, Providence, East Bank Demerara. The charge was recommended by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), after the police forwarded a file to the chambers.
Yesterday, when the matter was called in the courtroom of the Chief Magistrate, the court heard that the case file is yet to be completed and the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the matter cannot commence. This disclosure was made by Police Prosecutor, Neville Jeffers when the matter was called in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. The Prosecutor added that on the next court date if the file is not completed they will commence with the PI. The Magistrate after listening to the Prosecutor adjourned the matter until September 6 for a report.
According to a statement from the Police, on the night of June 10, 2018, Adams and her boyfriend were travelling west along Lamaha Street, Georgetown in a white Toyota 212 motorcar when she opened the door and leapt from the car, landing on the southern side of the road.
The Police said that the boyfriend picked up the woman and transported her to the hospital where she died. Government Pathologist Dr. Nehaul Singh gave her cause of death as blunt trauma to the head.
Based on reports, the police sought several extensions to further detain the boyfriend after there were conflicting reports surrounding the death of the teenager.
It was reported that Adams who was admitted to the hospital in a conscious state, told doctors that she had fallen down at home.
Sewcharran is being represented by Attorney-at-law Sanjeev Datadin.
