first_imgBy Andrew CarmichaelA murder-suicide at Union, typically referred to as Number 30 Village, on the West Coast of Berbice (WCB), Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) has left residents in a state of shock.Woman Police Sergeant Kenisha Sheriff-Fraser, 39, was found in a pool of blood at her lot 370 Union Village, WCB home.Dead: Murder suspect, Clayton AnthonyThe alleged suspect has been identified as Clayton Anthony, also called “Woody”, 42, a porkknocker who occupies the bottom flat of the said house. His body was found hanging from a tree at the village seashore.Police in a release confirmed they are investigating a murder-suicide. According to the release, the Sergeant’s body was discovered in a bedroom in the upper flat of her two-storied home with multiple chop wounds. A blood-stained cutlass, suspected to be the murder weapon, was recovered at the scene.Deputy Commander Edmond Cooper said the investigators were responding to a report of a murder without the knowledge of who the victim was.The house where the murder took placeHe said when the Police arrived, they discovered several chop wounds on the body of the deceased. “As the Police continued their investigation we tried to locate the perpetrator and at the back of Number 30 Village at the seaside, we saw him hanging from a tree.”Cooper noted that the investigation will continue. He referred to the Sergeant’s death as a tragic loss to the Guyana Police Force. “We will do all in our power to control the family at this point in time and the mother who happens to be a Lance Corporal, stationed at the Weldaad Police Station.”When Sheriff-Fraser’s body was discovered, she was naked and there were chop wounds to the stomach, forehead, neck and arms.Sheriff-Fraser, who is the Treasurer at the Bob Gilliard Church in the village, is said to have been preparing for church when she met her demise.At the home, several of her colleagues were inconsolable as they tried to come to grip with the fact that the Sergeant who worked at the Registry Department at Central Police Station in New Amsterdam was no more.A neighbour, Avril Carmichael, who discovered the body told Guyana Times that Sheriff-Fraser was making strange sounds prior to her going into the house.She said it was her 29-year-old granddaughter who heard what is believed to be someone crying and alerted her. “I did not hear no quarreling. My granddaughter said she hear her screaming out like crying and all of a sudden the crying stopped so she tell me to go over,” Carmichael revealed.At first she thought it was Sheriff-Fraser’s mother who is a Lance Corporal. She said she called and got no answer and then attempted to push open the front door but it was locked.“So I go around to the back and open the door and I call but no one answer. I went inside and turn the knob on the first bedroom door and it was locked and so I went to the next bedroom and push open the door and then I discover this gruesome sight lying on the floor….”An alarm was then raised and several persons rushed into the building.Meanwhile, Carmichael explained that one of her great-grandchildren was on her step when the suspect came out of the house and she asked him what happened to Kenisha. “He didn’t answer her but when I look outside I see when he pack up a rope and walk out the yard and go along about his business… I see him walking over the bridge going to the sea dam side and then I go over,” she related.Meanwhile, Sheriff-Fraser’s eldest son told Guyana Times that for the past two days, his mother was acting in a strange manner. He said she told him that she had to be in Georgetown to conduct business but did not elaborate.Moreover, the son related that the suspect was very friendly and helpful to the family.The woman leaves to mourn three children ages 18, 11 and five years old, along with her husband and mother. Meanwhile, Police say the bodies are at the Anthony’s Funeral Home awaiting post-mortem examinations.last_img read more


JUDGE ORDERS PROBATION REPORT AFTER PUNCH-UP AT ‘THE GRILL’ OVER ‘GAY’ SHIRT

first_imgONE man suffered a broken jaw and another man bruising after a punch-up in a Co Donegal nightclub sparked by homophobic comments about a shirt, a court has heard.Two men from the county appeared at Letterkenny District Court, each contesting assault charges arising out of an incident on the night of August 15, 2012.A Garda investigation was launched when Michael McDevitt, Drury Road, Kerrykeel, made a formal complaint of assault to officers at Letterkenny on August 24, 2012. He had suffered a serious blow in the incident nine days earlier and was later transferred from Letterkenny General Hospital to Altnagelvin in Derry where he underwent surgery to repair a broken jaw.A metal plate and six bolts had to be inserted into his jaw.Adam O’Donnell, a 22-year-old apprentice toolmaker from Castlewray, Letterkenny, later admitted punching McDevitt, but insisted it was in self defence, and only to protect his younger brother Mark who had been accosted by McDevitt who had made references to his clothes and his “gay shirt.”After hearing evidence from both men, Judge Paul Kelly convicted McDevitt of disorderly conduct in a public place, relating to his comments to Mark O’Donnell.He also convicted both McDevitt and Adam O’Donnell on assault charges.Inspector Michael Harrison said he felt “sad to have to prosecute this case” of two young men with no previous convictions.The inspector said that on the evidence given to the court it was clear that Adam O’Donnell saw that his brother was frightened and he went to look after him.Michael McDevitt was throwing insults at the young man Mark, he said, and his brother went over and intervened and an altercation took place.Judge Paul Kelly agreed. He said the disorder in a public place – the insults to Mark O’Donnell – was proved.He said there was some type of lunge by McDevitt on Adam O’Donnell in which he received a minor injury. Adam had retaliated resulting in life-changing injuries for Mr McDevitt, a 20-year-old student who worked as a kitchen porter at the Rathmullan House Hotel.“It’s a sad state of affairs when two very young men end up before the courts in a most unsavoury incident,” said Judge Kelly.He said the incident was started by McDevitt “who must have been in a state of considerable intoxication” having consumed two pints of bulmers and a half a bottle of vodka before going to The Grill and then six vodkas and two Jagemeisters on the premises.He said McDevitt’s claim that he “wasn’t too bad” was “totally lacking in any credibility.”Judge Kelly said: “He was extremely intoxicated and he couldn’t be anything other than extremely intoxicated.“He subjected Mark O’Donnell to extremely offensive insults and his brother Adam had intervened. The incident escalated almost instantly and I am satisfied they struck each other.”The judge said he was all too aware of fatalities occurring where a single blow has been thrown.“Young men in particular seem to have no regard for how a single blow can have catastrophic consequences,” said Judge Kelly.The judge said it was his view that long term implications for their future should be avoided where possible.He asked for probation service reports before passing sentence.The case was adjourned.JUDGE ORDERS PROBATION REPORT AFTER PUNCH-UP AT ‘THE GRILL’ OVER ‘GAY’ SHIRT was last modified: April 3rd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultDistrict Courtgay shirtKERRYKEELletterkennyMichael McDevittRathmullanrowThe Grilllast_img read more
