Suspect in Mahaicony murder was beaten, should be in hospital – relatives
A visibly battered Travis Hyman appeared in court yesterday charged with the stabbing to death of Mahaicony mechanic Alvy Richmond and his worried relatives are urging the police to take him to the hospital for medical attention.
Based on what Stabroek News was told by relatives last evening, officials at the prison refused to accept the man in his present condition and more so without a medical certificate. He was later returned to the lock-ups at the Cove and John Police Station.
Attempts to make contact with Division Commander Christopher Griffith and Crime Chief Leslie James were futile.
Hyman, age 30, of South Ruimveldt and Perth Village, Mahaicony is accused of committing the murder on June 21. He appeared before Magistrate Sueanna Lovell at the Mahaica Magistrate’s Court. He was remanded to prison until September 1.
