Peters of 254 B, Kaneville and Cox of 261 Kaneville, East Bank Demerara (EBD) were not required to plea to the indictable charge after it was read to them by chief Magistrate Ann McLennon.
Two weeks ago, Charles a student of the Covent Garden Secondary School was stabbed while attending a concert in the Nursery School compound in that village.
The teenager of Lot 69 Public Road, Grove, EBD was attending a concert with other friends. It is alleged that there was a misunderstanding and an argument ensued, following which he was stabbed to the region of the chest by a 17-year-old school dropout. That school dropout was later identified as Peters.
