Close to two months after a South Rumiveldt youth was gunned down in Linden after arriving in the town to meet a lady friend, a miner from the community has been charged and remanded to jail over the murder.
The accused 26-year-old, Samorea Mitchell appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court this morning and was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge.
It is alleged that on the 17th July at Wismar in Linden, Mitchell, and others murdered Delroy Mckenzie.
The accused was represented by Attorney Dexter Todd. He was the only person charged with the murder.
The Attorney said he is surprised that his client has been charged with the murder since there is nothing that links him to the crime. A wanted bulletin was issued for his arrest a few weeks ago.
The accused will make his next Court appearance on the 8th of October for the continuation of the case.
The murdered youth, Delroy Mckenzie who worked as a Chef, was shot nine times to his body in an execution-style as he approached a car that he was told to board to take him to a young woman’s house.
His friend who accompanied him on the trip was also shot but survived his injuries.
A car that was believed to have been used in the execution was later found burnt and abandoned in the Mackenzie area.
