Guyana: Quartet get 11½ years for killing kidnapped businessman

Four men who admitted to killing businessman Rajendra Singh, who was kidnapped and later found dead in a city cemetery in 2014, were yesterday each sentenced to 11 and a half years in jail.

Doodnauth Ketwaroo, called ‘Pumpkin,’ of Good Hope, East Coast Deme-rara; Tony Thomas, of Bel Air Village, Georgetown; Michael Lewis, called ‘Jet Lee,’ of Sheriff Street, Georgetown; and Adony James, of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, were sentenced by Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court after they pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

The judge, who told the men that they were receiving a second chance in life, noted that the years they have already spent in prison are to be deducted by the prison service from their sentence.
