Orwin and Cleon Hinds, Kevin October and Roy Jacobs, who were each sentenced to 81 years behind far for the murder of 72-year-old Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris, are now challenging the Court of Appeal to overturn their sentence and conviction.

The case management conference (CMC) for the matter was heard today before Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards, and Justices of Appeal Dawn Gregory, and Rishi Persaud.

The Appellate Court has set March 11, 2021, at 09:30 hrs for the hearing of the appeal.

Attorneys-at-Law, George Thomas and Dexter Todd are representing Orwin Hinds and Roy Jacobs, respectively. Additionally, Cleon Hinds and Kevin October are being represented by Attorney-at-Law Adrian Thompson.

Fiedtkou-Parris was gunned down at her Robb Street, Georgetown home on June 30, 2011.

Guyana Standard had reported that on the day of the shooting, two of the accused reportedly went to the woman’s Robb Street residence and requested to speak with her.

Upon hearing the request, the victim went to the door, and the gunmen immediately opened fire on her.

She died instantly. It was reported that after the shooting, the suspects made their escape in a waiting car. However, the men were purportedly caught on camera committing the act.

This publication had also reported that Fiedtou-Parris’ death was said to be linked to a property dispute between her and the owner of a prominent auto dealership, whose main office is located next to her Lot 42 Robb Street, Georgetown home.

Following a trial before Justice Navindra Singh in 2015 at the High Court, the four men were found guilty of the crime by a 12-member jury.

On November 24, 2015, Justice Singh had sentenced each of the accused to 81 years’ imprisonment and ordered that they become eligible for parole until serving a minimum of 45 years.
