After close to two weeks of intense investigations, the three persons who confessed to shooting to death three
men at Mibicuri Creek, Black Bush Polder, Beribce, were on Tuesday arraigned before City Magistrate Judy Latchman in a packed courtroom.
Carlton Chaitram, 38; his 18-year-old son Jairam Chaitram; and his employee, 26-year-old Tameshwar Jagmohan, all of Mibicuri South, Black Bush Polder, were charged for murder.
The men were not required to plead to the capital offence which stated that on July 21, they shot and killed 37-year-old Pawan Chandradeo; his 15-year-old son, Jaikarran Chandradeo; and his 33-year-old brother-in-law Naresh Rooplall.
The three unrepresented accused were remanded to prison until September 6.
Chandradeo, his son and brother-in-law had left home to go fishing but never returned. Their bodies were found the following day by a farmer.
Autopsies performed on the bodies of Jaikarran and Rooplall listed their cause of death as shock and haemorrhaging caused by a gunshot wound. Chandradeo died as a result of shock and haemorrhaging following a laceration to the head and a fractured skull.
Investigations led to the arrest of close to a dozen persons and during intense interrogations, the three suspects confessed to the murders.
Reports are Carlton Chaitram, a farmer, was reportedly stealing fuel from another farmer when they were seen by the trio who were fishing nearby. It was reported that out of fear of being caught; the farmer, his son and his employee killed the trio.
