Magistrate Gordon Gilhuys on Friday remanded to prison a man accused of fatally stabbing another over a borrowed knife.

Dayal Singh, 46, a vendor of Good Hope was not required to plead to murder when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court. It is alleged that on October 16 at Supenaam, Essequibo he murdered Stanley “Bob” Bovell.

According to a police press release Bovell, a speed boat operator, borrowed a knife from a vendor to peel fruits and failed to return it. He was stabbed to death with the same knife.

The two men were involved in an argument after which Singh allegedly took the knife and stabbed Bovell to the upper left shoulder. He was rushed to the Suddie Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The case was transferred to Court One for October 23.
