Man who reportedly killed stepson remanded to prison


A 27-year-old construction worker was on Thursday remanded to prison for the murder of his 19-year-old stepson Isaiah Edwards.

Shawn Bobb of Independence Boulevard, Albouystown, Georgetown, appeared before Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

He was not required to plea to the charge which alleged that between January 26 -27, 2022 at La Penitence Squatting Area, Georgetown, he stabbed the young man to death.

Bobb was remanded to prison until February 11, 2022.

According to reports, Bobb stabbed the teenager on January 26. Edwards tried to save his mother who was being abused by the stepfather; the man had picked up a knife and attacked the woman because she did not finish cooking in time.

Bobb had escaped and Edwards was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital to receive treatment for the stab wound to his right hip.

Police Headquarters reported that the boy tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be transferred to the Infectious Diseases Hospital at Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown where he eventually died on January 27.

Bobb was subsequently arrested on January 29, while hiding out in a house at Helena #1 Mahaica, East Coast of Demerara (ECD).

At the time, he was disguised as a female, complete with makeup and a wig on his head.
