The Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the murder of Sasia Adams, who allegedly jumped from a moving vehicle will commence next week.
This was disclosed yesterday by Police Prosecutor, Neville Jeffers who told the court that the Prosecution’s file is complete and the PI will commence on September 15 before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. Rick Sewcharran,21, is currently out on $500,000 bail in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Sasia Adams.
Sewcharran 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, statements were handed over to the defence.
The Prosecution is expected to call 15 witnesses in the PI.
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.
