Accused in drug deal killing freed
Ramsohai Boodhoo, who is accused of killing his friend during a drug deal in 2011, was yesterday acquitted of the murder charge. Boodhoo, also called “Baigie,” was found not guilty of killing Eon Daniels. It was the prosecution’s case that Boodhoo killed Daniels after accusing him of shortchanging him $500 in a drug transaction at Herstelling, East Bank Demerara. He was tried before Justice William Ramlal and a 12-member jury in the High Court.
After an hour of deliberation, the jurors returned from their chambers with their not guilty verdict and Boodhoo fought back tears as the shackles were removed from his feet.
