Assistant Superintendent of Police Marlon Chapman and witness Simone De Nobrega were both cross-examined by defence Attorney Vic Puran at the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the charge against Bibi Sharima Gopaul and Jarvis Small for the murder of 16-year-old Neesa Gopaul.
The PI is being heard at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court by acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry. It continues today.
Neesa Gopaul’s mother, Bibi, and her stepfather, Small, were charged with her 2010 murder.
It is alleged that between September 24 and October 2, 2010 at Madewini, Linden-Soesdyke Highway, the two murdered the teen, whose body was later found in a suitcase anchored in the creek at the Emerald Tower Resort.
