Wanted man finally caught, charged with 2013 murder
A 31-year-old man who was on the run from the Police and wreaking havoc in Berbice, was on Monday charged for the 2013 murder of Tolasicy Marshall of James Street, Albouystown.
Muammar Jabbar known as Christopher Haynes, formally of James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, appeared before Chief Magistrate (ag) Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court.
It is alleged that on August 20, 2013, at James Street, Albouystown, Jabbar was armed with a knife and murdered Marshall.
The father of two told the court that he has a robbery under arms charge in the Berbice Magisterial District.
Police Prosecutor Shellon Daniels told the court that Jabbar was arrested by Police while on remand in Berbice under the fake name of ‘Christopher Haynes’ and is well known for his involvement in armed robberies committed in that region.
Daniels told the court the Police file in still incomplete and requested an adjournment. As such the case was postponed to June 24, 2019, and Jabbar was remanded to prison until then.
Marshall, of Hogg Street, Albouystown, was stabbed twice and died at the Georgetown Hospital about half an hour later.
The News Room understands that Marshall had paid his assailant to make jewellery for him but the man failed to deliver the goods.
Marshall subsequently retrieved a gold chain from the man but the jeweller still owed him.
He was walking through School Street when his assailant reportedly walked out of his yard and stabbed him.
