His name was given as Shamudeen Mohamed and his address as Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo. He and four others were charged in December last year with the murders of Good Hope rice farmers Mohamed and Jamilla Munir, who burnt to death after their house was set ablaze during a robbery attempt on April 17, last year.
