Man in 2017 killing of security guard to be sentenced on May 11

Abdul Mc Lennan, who has pleaded guilty to unlawfully killing a security guard back in 2017, will be sentenced on May 11 by Berbice High Court Judge Simone Morris-Ramlall.
The confessed killer is currently on remand.
Initially indicted for the December 4, 2017 murder of security guard Leslie Fraser, McLennan opted to plead guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter upon his arraignment.
The prosecution’s case is that McLennan, after imbibing until nearly midnight on the day in question, was walking in the direction of Rose Hall, Berbice, when he saw Fraser.
Fraser had accused Mc Lennan of stealing his bicycle.
According to the facts presented by the prosecution, an angry Mc Lennan then cuffed the security guard to his head, causing him to fall and hit his head on the roadway.
An injured Fraser was rushed to the hospital where he died five days later.
Fraser has not disputed the prosecution’s facts. He is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Moti Singh while State Counsel Muntaz Ali is appearing for the prosecution.
Justice Morris-Ramlall deferred the convict’s sentencing hearing to facilitate the preparation of probation and victim impact reports. (G1)
