The accused appeared before Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan and were not required to plea to the indictable charge.

They were all remanded to prison.
During last week, two of the accused confessed to law enforcement that they were ordered by an overseas based Guyanese businessman to kill Narinedat who had choked and slapped the businessman after he had made sexual advances towards him.
The other two suspects also admitted their involvement in the crime.
Additionally, two females are also expected to be charged with perverting the course of justice after trying to bribe investigators with $4M to have the accused released.
