A 37-year-old man has been charged for murdering 29-year-old Kishan Persaud, a father of two.

Kendrick Shepherd, of 2nd Street, Craig, East Bank Demerara appeared before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman where he was not required to plea to the charge which stated that on Saturday, August 29, 2020 at Craig, East Bank Demerara, he murdered Persaud.

He was remanded to prison until September 22.

Reports are that Persaud was driving motor car PKK 8911 through a street next to where he lives, but could not enter his yard because the suspect had parked his cart, blocking his passageway.

Persaud reportedly exited his vehicle and asked the suspect to remove his cart, but the suspect refused.

As a result, an argument ensued between the two men during which the suspect reportedly whipped out a cutlass and chopped the man twice to his neck.

Persaud was taken to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre for emergency treatment. However, while he was receiving medical attention, he succumbed to his injuries.

The man’s wife told INews that her three-year-old son is left traumatised, since he witnessed the entire incident.

“My son saw what happened, and he keep saying that he see the man chopped his daddy and his daddy gone to the hospital and his daddy is dead. I don’t know what to tell him, when he gets big I don’t know what I’m gonna say to him…,” the woman had lamented.
