A man was yesterday remanded to prison by a city court, after being charged with the murder of a Kuru Kururu legal clerk.
The charge alleged that Travis Evans, between July 31 and August 2, at Kuru Kururu, Linden- Soesdyke Highway, in the company of others, murdered Gregory Frank during the course or furtherance of a robbery.
Evans was not required to plead to the indictable charge.
Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, remanded the man to prison and adjourned the matter until November 27.
Previous reports stated that Frank, 46, a legal clerk of Lot 686 Kuru Kururu, Soesdyke-Linden Highway, was found dead in a pool of blood in his home. It was suspected that he may have been killed during a burglary.
A post-mortem examination later revealed that the man died from asphyxiation due to a compression injury to the neck along with blunt trauma to the head.
According to a police press release, Frank’s body was discovered around 4.30 am in the living room of his home. The statement said the rear door to Frank’s home was found ajar and the entire house was ransacked. Frank’s sister had indicated that two flat-screen televisions, among other valuables, were stolen from the house.
Three persons were in early August held in connection with the murder, questioned and released on station bail.
