A juvenile was yesterday charged with the gruesome killing of a 68-year-old security guard, who was attacked in the Le Repentir Cemetery.

The 17-year-old yesterday appeared before Magistrate, Dylon Bess in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

He was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on May 18, 2020, at Le Repentir Cemetery, Georgetown, he murdered Margaret Dawson.

He was remanded until June 25. Another teenager, along with the taxi driver who was arrested in the connection with Dawson’s murder, has been released.

Meanwhile, the police are questioning another youth, who has been implicated in the elderly guard’s murder.

That individual was shot in the leg during a confrontation with police a few days ago after police received information that he had in his possession one of the murdered woman’s rings.

The elderly woman’s body was discovered battered, half-naked, and sprawled in a clump of bushes in the cemetery last Sunday.
