[www.inewsguyana.com] – Music Teacher Lennox Wayne also known as “2colors” of Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara and Melroy Davis of Bent Street Wortmanville, Georgetown both appeared before Magistrate Zameena Ali in the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court Today; charged with murdering Lusignan Hairdresser Ashmini Harriram on July 10 on the Lusignan railway embankment.

The two men were not allowed to plea to the indictable charge which alleged that Lennox Wayne, the number one accused, along with Melroy Davis committed the act which is a contradiction of the common law.

They were both remanded to prison until October 3. 

Wayne is said to be the trigger man while Davis is said to be the taxi driver who drove Wayne to the scene of the crime. Following the act Davis reportedly transported Wayne back to the Capital City.

As the charges were being read in Court, Wayne appeared very relaxed as he listened with a grin on his face while the taxi driver appeared to be a bit more worried.

The mother of the dead teenager could not bear to hear the facts of the matter as it was being read and broke down in tears.

When the Magistrate began reading the facts of the matter to Davis he attempted to speak to the Magistrate but was cautioned that he has the right to remain silent if he chooses to.

The Magistrate told him that she would allow him to speak if he so desires but after the facts were read to him he changed his decision to engage the Court. Both Davis and Wayne were unrepresented in Court.

Wayne told the Court that he has two children and works as a drumming teacher at the Magic Fingers Drumming School. He was asked if he was ever charged before to which he responded in the positive; telling the Court that he was charged for robbery and was sentenced to jail in 2006. 

Davis on the other hand was never charged before, has no children, works as a taxi driver and is not married.

The two men were reportedly contracted by the brother – in – law of the hairdresser and another man who wanted her dead after they suspected that she snitched on them and informed the police of a drug operation they operated causing it to be seized by law enforcement officers.

The young woman was shot in her head in Lusignan, East Coast Demerara on July 10, minutes after she disembarked a minibus. Her $8,000 cell phone was the only thing stolen from her.
