Norton Street man remanded for stabbing brother to death
Twenty-seven-year-old Quincy Chase of Norton Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown, was on Tuesday arraigned for the murder of his brother when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Chase was not required to plead to the indictment which stated that on June 5, 2021, at Cummings Street, Bourda, he murdered Paul Chase.
As such, he was remanded to prison and will make his next court appearance on July 22, 2021.
It was reported that on the day in question, as per normal, the two men turned up at their mother’s house to have breakfast. However, while there, the woman reportedly questioned Reynolds about a burnt spot on a mattress.
This angered him and as such, he began to shout at his mother in the living room. The suspect then dealt one cuff to his mother’s face, causing her to receive injuries to her left eye.
Upon seeing this, the now dead 24-year-old man confronted him and a heated argument broke out between them.
It was at that time, Reynolds armed himself with a knife and stabbed Chase once to the chest and once to the neck. As a result, Chase reportedly collapsed and was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The suspect was arrested with what appears to be a bite mark to his neck. He was later charged for the heinous crime.
