Almost nine years after he shot and killed businessman Dennis Ramah — a Chateau Margot, East Coast Demerara businessman — Victor Bobb was moments ago found guilty of the crime by a jury and sentenced to 80 years behind bars.

Dead: Dennis Ramah

Bobb was on trial before Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court in Georgetown for the November 16, 2010 murder of Ramah, 64, the proprietor of L&D Supermarket.

Shortly after the killing, police in a release said that a group of men invaded the supermarket and held Ramah’s employees at gunpoint. Police had said that the businessman raised an alarm and armed himself with a cutlass which he used to wound one of the men, who in turn shot him twice to the chest.

During the trial, Ramah’s wife, Loraine Ramah, identified Bobb as the man who shot and killed her husband. Pointing to Bobb who was at the time seated in the prisoner’s dock clad in a brightly coloured shirt, a sobbing Loraine had said, “Is he! Is he shoot me husband.”

Prosecutors Abigail Gibbs, Tuanna Hardy, and Teriq Mohamed presented the State’s case, while attorney-at-Law Latoya Roberts represented Bobb.
