Home News “Tattoo Nose” slapped with murder charge
A 55-year-old man was remanded to prison when he appeared on Wednesday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts for the capital offence of murder.
Phillip Bacchus, also known as “Tattoo Nose” of Lot 36 Railway Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara (ECD), stood before Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Wednesday.
It is alleged that on May 9, 2019 at Princeville, Mahdia, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), he stabbed Leavern Daniels. However, the man succumbed to his injuries on May 10. The prosecution is contending that on May 9, 2019 at 23:45h at Princeville, Daniels and some friends were imbibing at a shop when the accused approached their table and requested some of their alcohol. This request was denied. It is alleged that Bacchus became annoyed and threatened to harm Daniels, after which he left.
Shortly after, Daniels was on his way to a camp when he was attacked and reportedly stabbed in the region of his abdomen by the accused. Daniels was rushed to the Mahdia Hospital, where he died. Bacchus was subsequently arrested.
The father of four was remanded to prison. The case will continue today.
