32-year-old Tramangra Williams, who was convicted and sentenced to 18 years imprisonment in 2014 for unlawfully killing her boyfriend, opted to withdraw her appeal this morning after being granted an early release on parole.
Williams, also known as ‘Queenie’, appeared before Chancellor of the Judiciary Yonette Cummings-Edwards, and two other judges, and made an application to withdraw her matter.
Her requested was granted and she was later informed by the court that she was free to go. Guyana Standard was reliably informed that Williams was released on parole in June 2018.
Williams was initially indicted for murder, but a jury found her guilty of manslaughter.
According to information, Williams stabbed and killed her Barbadian boyfriend, Tyron McDonald Best on December 27, 2008.
Williams and her lover were involved in an altercation during which she stabbed him to the stomach.
Williams, in a caution statement, said that on the day in question she had threatened to make a police report against her boyfriend when he picked up a shoes and pelt it at her.
In retaliation, Williams said she stabbed Best with the knife. Justice Navindra Singh had imposed the 18-year sentence on Williams.
