Cop testifies in inquiry into charge against accused in clothing vendor’s murder

A police officer was the latest witness to take the stand when the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the charge against Kelvin Persaud and Selwyn Dawson, who are accused of murdering clothing vendor Purcell Moore Jr, continued yesterday.

The charge against the duo states that on December 20th, 2017, at Old Road, Craig, they murdered Moore, who was gunned down.

During yesterday’s hearing before Magistrate Fabayo Azore in George-town, Police Sergeant Keith Conway took the stand.

The matter was later adjourned until September 27th, when the final witness is expected to testify.

After being attacked at Old Road, Craig, not far from his parents’ home, Moore was later rushed to the East Bank Demerara Regional Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival.

Moore had only arrived a few days earlier from Cayenne, French Guiana, where he had been working.
