Rodrick Thomas, a security guard who is one of the two men held in connection with the fatal shooting of taxi driver Kelvin Walters, was yesterday charged with murder.

Thomas appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in Georgetown, where the charge was read to him as he sat with his left leg in a cast. Police say his leg was broken just after he committed the crime.

The second man, Devon Alleyne, who is also implicated in the crime, remains hospitalised and should be discharged next week, when he too is expected to be charged.

The charge alleges that Thomas, in the company of Alleyne, murdered Walters on January 22nd, at Eccles Public Road, East Bank Demerara…..
