The three men accused of killing Soesdyke farmer Anthony Breedy were on Tuesday arraigned for murder when they
The three suspects: Paul Gorriea, Keron Timothy Corbin, and Donnel Trapp
appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Paul Gorriea, 28; Keron Timothy Corbin, 18 and Donnel Trapp, 21, all of Timehri, East Bank Demerara, were not required to plead to the joint murder charge.
According to court documents, between March 12 and 14 at Soesdyke in the furtherance of a robbery, the accused murdered 60-year-old Breedy of First Foot, Soesdyke.
The prosecution’s report on the matter is still outstanding and, according to Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers, additional statements are needed with respect to the matter.
The three men were unrepresented and will make their next court appearance on April 18.
The battered body of Breedy, who had worked in Montserrat as an Agriculture Officer and only returned to Guyana last year, was found in his home two Mondays ago with his head bashed in and hands and feet bound.
His SUV was also missing. Police, acting on intelligence, went to Nabaclis, East Coast Demerara, where they arrested Gorriea, who was in possession of the dead man’s ATM card as well as the missing SUV. A female companion of the now dead man was also arrested.
After his arrest, Gorriea reportedly confessed to the murder and reportedly implicated Trapp and Corbin. They were subsequently arrested in Ithaca, West Bank Berbice, in a house when Police and members of the SWAT team swooped down on them.
After their arrest, they allegedly took investigators to a location where they had hidden a gun and matching ammunition. They also reportedly admitted that they had conspired to commit the heinous crime.
