Two Corentyne men were remanded to prison when they appeared in the Albion Magistrates’ Court today (Tuesday January 10, 2017) to answer a murder charge.
The accused, 30-year-old Rocky Ramoo and 28-year-old Ravendra Ramnauth of Beharry Street, Rose Hall, Corentyne were not required to plea to charge when it was read to them by magistrate Marissa Mittleholzer.
The court heard that on Thursday, December 29, 2016, at Williamsburg, Corentyne Berbice, the two accused murdered 49-year-old Mohan Ball of Hampshire on the Corentyne.
Ramoo and Ramnauth were arrested after police received information that they were among the last persons seen with the deceased and at the time they were beating him about his body with a piece of wood following a misunderstanding.
Ball who resides with his sister at Hampshire on the Corentyne was found dead at about 13:00 hours on the day in question by a villager. He was later identified by family members who called the police to the scene.
News Room was told that at the time, Ball’s body bore marks of violence including bruises which suggested that he was dragged and dumped at the location where his body was found. The body was taken to the Port Mourant Hospital where it was examined by a doctor who pronounced him dead on arrival.
The two accused are expected to make their next court appearance on 30th January, 2017.
