Almost two weeks after eight persons, including a doctor, were charged in connection with the murder of Essequibo businessman, Deon Stoll, they were all further remanded to prison today.

When the matter was called in the courtroom of Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, the prosecutor indicated to the court that statements for the case file are still incomplete.

As such, the prosecutor requested additional time to file the statements. Hence, the eight persons were further remanded to prison.

Those charged with murder are Shane Morgan also known as Delong ‘Demon’ Morgan, 33, a graphic artist of East LaPenitence, Georgetown;  Roberto Sankar, 28, the owner of Island Bar of 6 Pigeon Island, East Coast Demerara; Wayne St Hill, 38, also a graphic artist of Kitty, Georgetown; and Steve Rollox, 32, a taxi driver, of 55 Peter’s  Hall, East Bank Demerara.

The charge against the quartet stated that on October 14, at DaSilva Street, Kitty, Georgetown, while being in the company of each other, they murdered Deon ‘Mow’ Stoll during the course of a robbery.

Those charged with accessory to murder are Odessa St Hill, 37, a graphic artist of Campbellville; Alonzo De Santos, 33, a medical doctor and a left lieutenant in the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) of 136 Prospect, East Bank Demerara; Duncan Vanvield, 36, a mechanic of B Field Sophia and Keith Mckenzie, 56, a taxi driver of 103 East LaPenitence, Georgetown.

The charge against the quartet stated that between October 13 and October 23, they, well knowing that Shane Morgan, also known as Delon ‘Demon’ Morgan, and three others, had murdered Deon Stoll, they received and comforted Morgan.

They were not required to plead to the indictable charge after it was read to them by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrate’s Courts.

According to information, on the day in question, the businessman was going to sell raw gold at El Dorado Trading when gunmen attacked him and his driver.

Surveillance footage shows the businessman’s car driving on Da Silva Street—heading towards the gold dealership with the gunmen’s car tailing closely behind.

Just as Stoll’s driver drove onto a parking spot in front of the company, the suspects stopped behind and two gunmen jumped out of their vehicle and ran to both doors. The gunmen immediately opened fire.

Stoll was seen on surveillance footage opening fire on the suspects while his driver tried to wrestle one of the men. It is unclear if the men carted off with any valuables from the victims.
The victims were immediately rushed to the hospital where Stoll passed away.
