(NEWS ROOM GUYANA) — A Silver Hill, Soesdyke/Linden Highwayman who was only recently released from jail, has now been charged with the October 7 murder of his four-year-old stepson; a post mortem showed the child was also sodomised.
The News Room had earlier reported that on October 7, 2019, James claimed to have “found” the child naked and unconscious.
The stepfather had initially told the Police that he left the child home to go to a nearby shop to buy food stuff to cook and when he returned home he found the child in that state.
Nurses from the health centre were called to the house and after realizing the situation, they called an ambulance from the Mckenzie Hospital in Linden. The child died before reaching the hospital.
James was sentenced to 36 months in jail in 2016 for snatching a schoolgirl’s cellphone.
