Kitty man remanded on murder charge after 4 years on the run

After being on the run for four years over the stabbing death of a Kitty man,  33-year-old Damian Bissoon recently surrendered to the Police to face the murder charge.

The murder accused appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan this morning at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and was not required to enter a plea to the indictable murder charge.

He is accused of stabbing Taj Andrew Jarvis to death on the 30th May 2018 at Barr and Alexander Street in Kitty.

The two men reportedly got into an argument after Bissoon repeatedly asked Jarvis to give him some money and the man refused.

In the midst of the argument, it was reported that Bissoon armed himself with a knife and attacked the other man by first repeatedly slashing him and then stabbing him in the upper body. The victim was rushed to the hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

An arrest warrant was issued for the accused at the time but he was not seen until Monday when he showed up suddenly at a Police station to surrender.

He has been remanded to prison on the murder charge and will make his next appearance in Court on the 17th May.
