Les Charles Critchlow, who is accused of murdering his brother-in-law back in 2016, will know his fate today when a 12-member jury returns from deliberations. Critchlow, 64, is on trial for the offence before Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court in Demerara.
Critchlow is accused of murdering his brother-in-law, 56-year-old Terrence Adams, on May 12, 2016. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge. On Monday, State Prosecutor Tiffini Lyken and Defence Counsel Rachael Bakker presented closing arguments following the close of the case for the prosecution.
This morning, Justice Singh will sum up the evidence before sending it to the jury for deliberation on a verdict. Based on reports, Adams, called “Sleepy” and “Uncle Terry”, of North Haslington, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was stabbed to death during an argument with Critchlow. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
At the time of his demise, Adams operated a small rum shop at his residence.
