Duo remanded for murder of former Priest


Rawle McPherson, 45, of Victoria, East Coast Demerara (ECD) and Mohanie Mohabir, 43, of Corentyne, Berbice were today charged with the murder of former Priest George Chuck-A-Sang.

The pair was arraigned at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan .

The charge states that between December 21 and December 23, 2020, at the St. Sidwell’s Anglican Church, Vlissengen Road, Lodge, Georgetown, they murdered Chuck-A-Sang.

The duo will make their next court appearance on February 25. Reports indicate that the duo are known to the priest and would visit him often.

Chuck-A-Sang lived alone at the vicarage of the church.

His daughter told investigators that she last spoke to her father on December 18.

On the day in question, she called her father via WhatsApp but he did not answer.

The daughter later then went to her father’s home but was unable to contact him.

As such, she went to the residence of the current Priest and informed him of the situation.

She and the Priest then returned to her father’s home where the Priest opened the door.

Upon investigating, they discovered the body in a motionless state on the floor.

Police had said there were what appeared to be seven stab wounds about his body, and his forehead appeared to be swollen.
