Paul Gorriea, Keron Timothy Corbin and Donnel Trapp – all of Timehri, are expected to make their first court appearance today at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts for the brutal murder of 60-year-old Anthony Breedy of First Hill, Soesdyke/Linden Highway.
The trio was supposed to appear in court on Monday, but the Police up to late that afternoon were seeking advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on the matter.
Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum later on Monday said the Police have already instituted charges against the men and it was now for them to make their court appearance. He also noted that Gorriea had prior brushes with the law.
The battered body of Breedy was found in his home two Mondays ago with his head bashed in and hands and feet bound. His SUV was also missing. Police, acting on intelligence, went to Nabaclis, East Coast Demerara where they arrested Gorriea who was in possession of the dead man’s ATM card as well as the missing SUV. A female companion of the now dead man was also arrested.
After his arrest, he confessed to the murder and implicated Trapp and Corbin. They were subsequently arrested in Ithaca, West Bank Berbice in a house when Police and members of the SWAT Team swooped down on them.
After their arrest, they took investigators to a location where they had hidden a gun and matching ammunition. During their subsequent interrogation, they also admitted that they had conspired to commit the heinous crime.
