Two charged for murder of Victoria men
Two men, a painter and a labourer, were remanded to prison on Thursday after charged separately in relation to the murders of Yoffi Bobb and William Montrose, the two men who were fatally wounded during a fight on December 17 at Victoria, East Coast Demerara.
Emperor Emanuel Chung, 25 and Ruel Ward, 23, both of Victoria Village, East Coast Demerara are accused of murdering Bobb and Montrose on December 17.
Chung was arrested on Saturday while Ward was arrested last Monday.
They both appeared before Magistrate Crystal Lambert at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court.
The duo was not required to plead to the indictable charge. Chung is scheduled to reappear in court on January 17 while Ward’s case was adjourned to January 15.
During the December 17 brawl, two other men, Delex Skeete, a 25-year-old plumber and Siyani McFarlene, a 19-year-old mason, were also seriously injured.
Police Headquarters reported that Bobb, Skeete and McFarlene were at a party at Victoria after 01:45 hrs when they allegedly attacked Montrose and took away his gold chain.
During the attack, Bobb and the others reportedly dealt Montrose several stabs about his body. Montrose then left the party but returned with a cutlass and dealt all three men chops about their bodies. He then fled the scene.
Bobb and the two others were escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, where Bobb was pronounced dead while the other two were admitted as patients.
Sometime after, Police Officers combed the area of the scene and discovered Montrose’s body in a trench about 500 feet north of the scene. A knife was also found tucked in his left side waist.
