High Court Judge Brassington Reynolds imposed a 12-year jail sentence on 34-year-old Rawle Khan, who appeared before him for killing a man by striking him with a piece of rock to the back.
Rawle Michael Khan who appeared yesterday at the High Court in Georgetown and pleaded guilty to the lesser offence manslaughter, admitted that on October 6, 2013 at Mabaruma, he unlawfully killed Christopher Allicock.
Attorney-at-law Clyde Forde represented Khan, who was initially indicted for murder. On admitting guilt, Khan had repeatedly begged the Judge for eight years.
According to information, on the day in question at Mabaruma, Khan and his boss were engaged in an intense argument over monies. Subsequently, a scuffle ensued.
The court was told that during that time, Allicock was passing and Khan struck him in the back with a piece of rock.
Allicock ran a short distance but was later found motionless. He was taken to the hospital where he succumbed while receiving treatment.
An autopsy conducted on the man revealed that he died because of a ruptured spleen and blunt trauma to the back. Prosecutor Seeta Bishundial presented the case for the State.
