The Police said they are investigating the circumstances that led a 65-year-old to murder his 55-year-old brother on Thursday at Den Amstel, West Coast Demerara.
The dead man has been identified as Winston Jordan.
Reports are that Jordan and his brother were consuming alcohol at Back Street, Den Amstel when he (Jordan) got up to leave. However, he was followed by his brother he then held on to him. Jordan then held on to a neighbour’s gate but his brother continued to pull at him.
Jordan then lost his grip on the gate, and his brother then pushed him to the ground, resulting in the victim hitting his head on the road, resulting in his losing consciousness.
The brother then dragged Jordan across the street and threw him into a trench.
The motionless body of the man was pulled from the trench by two passersby who saw what transpired. The victim was escorted to the Leonora Cottage Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The body is presently at the Ezekiel Funeral Home awaiting a postmortem examination.
The suspect was later arrested and remains in custody as the investigation continues.
