Several months after 72-year-old Jerry Rambeer met his demise reportedly via a beating with a rolling pin, the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into his unnatural death is still before the courts.
INews understands that the case is set to continue at the Wales Magistrate’s Court on March 7, 2019.
The accused youth, Joseph Rameshwar, of Belle Vue, West Bank Demerara (WBD), is on trial for allegedly murdering the elderly man with a rolling pin between July 1 and 3, 2018.
Testimony was scheduled to continue earlier this month, but the matter saw an adjournment. Police claimed that the teen confessed to the elderly man’s savage beating at Back Street, Good Intent, WBD. Originally, Rameshwar’s father was implicated, but Police had only instituted charges against the son based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Rambeer, of Sisters Village, WBD, was found lying in an unconscious state on July 1, 2018, and took his last breath on July 3 when he was receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital. It was two days after the beating that Rameshwar was arrested and reportedly confessed to hitting Rambeer to the head with the rolling pin during an argument.
Reports were that on July 1, 2018, the pensioner attended a wedding at La Retraite, WBD, with several of his friends. Sometime later that night, the man was reportedly found lying in a pool of blood in an area known as “Gaza Street”.
The now deceased father of three reportedly suffered severe internal injuries, a punctured intestine, and broken ribs.
