Amid chaos, the five teenagers implicated in the robbery/ murder of Guyana-born American University Professor, Perry Mars were charged for the brutal crime when they appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court this morning.

Under heavy police guard, the two females and three males arrived at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court around 930h. with their faces covered.

The five teens were not required to plead to the charge when it was read to them by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan. One of them, the 15-year-old girl, was charged as a juvenile while the others were charged as adults. The matter was heard in-camera.

The youngsters are expected to make their next court appearance on June 14.

Scores of relatives and friends who had gathered outside the court were in tears as the five youngsters were taken to the courtroom to answer the charges.

On Monday, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Chambers had recommended that charges be laid against the teenagers.

The 75-year-old Professor was found dead in his home, gagged and tied to a chair. Quick action by investigators led to the arrest of the teenagers– four boys and two girls for the crime. When they were arrested by police ranks, a sum of cash, a laptop computer, an I-phone and a play station were in their possession.

The youngsters were reportedly arrested in the Campbellville and Sophia areas and had been positively identified by eyewitnesses who saw them on the day the crime was committed removing suitcases from the now dead man’s home and placing them into a car.

  1. WHY THE HELL ARE THEIR RELATIVES CRYING? I MEAN THEY HAD THE HEART TO GO KILL ANOTHER HUMAN BEING WITHOUT THINKING OF THE HORRIFYING ACT, WHY CRY ABOUT IT, THEY NEED TO BE PUNISHED, IF THEY WERE ACCUSED AND DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE UNSPEAKABLE CRIME,THEN CRY FOR THEM. IM A PARENT AND TO THINK IF MY CHILD COMMIT SUCH A CRIME I WOULD NOT EVEN BE AT THE COURT HOUSE, SMH SO WHAT THE GUY WAS A PEDOPHILE, NEVER TAKE THE LAW INTO YOUR OWN HANDS, THEY WENT THERE WITH THE INTENTION TO KILL, A CHILD OF THEIR AGE KNOWING WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUNG GIRLS THESE DAYS, SHUD NOT HAVE GONE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. NO ONE DESERVES TO DIE, NO MATTER THE CRIME.NO MAN SHOULD BE THE JUDGE OF ANOTHER MANS LIFE.

  2. KK YOU SAID IT All,,,his dirty lifestyle caught up with him. These kids are victims of opportunity,the sucker had bad intentions and what’s in the dark came to light. You can dress a PIG in a suit but he is still arnol in the end,,dirty old bastard.

  3. I am quite sure this was not his first rodeo with teenager girls. The difference is this time the kids reacted. Final results he is dead. From all indication it seems that this man used his Status –“professor” to lure young innocent girls to his residence to take advantage of them–this time it did not work out his way–THESE KIDS SHOULD NOT BE LOCKED UP BUT SENT TO REHAB–they are victims of circumstances…any right minded person would do what they did you save themselves .

  4. Come on now there are two sides of the story here—remember he invited a teenager to his house when his wife was not there –did he invite her to clean his shoe or his —( pedophile).He created the environment for what happened by INVITING teenage girls to his residence.WHY?????????The kids reacted to his aggressive advances because what he invited them for he could get and that created a chain reaction and the kids being kids will responded in a manner to protect themselves out of fear of being hurt and without thinking about the repercussions.It is how kids react its a spur of the moment reaction to save their lives.Sorry he is dead but that’s what you get when you play with fire BURN–He is the cause for what happen.

  5. Are you a fool or what Shonella these are kids and they made a mistake so what’s the big deal they need to go to rehab why lock them up they have a great future ahead of them they are the future scientist and doctors of Guyana –your President will release them and make sure they go to church every Sunday–The only mistake these kids made was to kill one of their kind, period. That’s why you people are so upset–And genius ask yourself the question–WHY DID THIS GROWN ASS OLD MAN INVITE A YOUNG TEENAGE WOMAN TO HIS HOUSE IN HIS WIFE’s ABSENCE????? He wanted to take advantage of an innocent female teenager–live by the sword you will die by the sword—HE WANTED A YOUNG PUSSYCAT.

  6. Jail these heartless criminals! Who can one trust? Imagine the Professor trust this girl and this is what she looks to do, end the man’s life because of her evil greedy heart.
    I blame the parents and guardians of these teenagers because clearly it can be seen that they have been taught how to be dishonest. The hands that rocks the cradle rules the world. As Guyanese people we need to stop being so greedy and selfish for material possessions that they would kill even their neighbours for a laptop and cash. How evil and selfish this act is! Let them show their faces, if they were so brazzen to commit the act in broad daylight then show their faces. The parents should not cry now because they have not raised godly children, clearly the image of the parents have been reflected in the actions of their children! The parents see them with the items and the parents know that they did not buy or give them those monies. Did the parents question them? You see parents are the major master mind behind the crime situation in Guyana because they are not teaching their children how to be honest.

  7. These teens should have been in school . Parents have to pay attention to their children friends . If they walk like a duck their a duck . Greed and jealously should not be in children mind set. We need to communicate with our children more often or too late will be the cry.

  8. Show us the faces of those being tried as adults!
    I’d want to recommend 75 years each for penalty with no chance of parole, but as a tax payer, that’s too much money to support them for the rest of their lives. I’d want to know who is the brave attorney and how much they’re being paid?
    Condolences to the Mars family and I’m sorry that his legacy has ended this way.
