Man charged with murder of Essequibo teen

A murder charge has been read against the man accused of fatally stabbing 17-year-old Alex Narine on Monday at Drying Floor Ground, Anna Regina.

Akash Baldeo, 22, of Lot 81 Anna Regina New Housing Scheme, was not required to plead to the charge when he appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

The charge states that Baldeo, on August 4, murdered Narine of Columbia, Essequibo Coast.

According to the police’s case, at about 3pm on August 4, Narine was involved in an argument with Baldeo over a computer and during the altercation he was stabbed to his back. He was subsequently pronounced dead on arrival at the Suddie Public Hospital.

Meanwhile, a post-mortem examination conducted on the body of Narine yesterday by pathologist Nehaul Singh at the Suddie Public Funeral Home revealed that the teen died from the stab wound he suffered to his left lung.

Bail was refused by the magistrate and Baldeo was remanded into the custody of the state until August 20, when the preliminary inquiry into the charge against him is scheduled to begin.
