Four persons who are accused of murdering a man whose body was found in a yard with gunshot wounds, were on Monday charged with murder and remanded to prison. Those charged are Nicholas Hercules called ‘Bucko’, Brenna Nurse, Devon Harry called ‘Beer’, and Peter Lam.

They all appeared before Magistrate Alisha George at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Court. They were not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on August 15, 2021, at ‘C’ Field, Sophia, Greater Georgetown, they murdered 24-year-old Keon McPherson.

They were all remanded to prison until September 17, 2021.

According to reports at around 04:00h on August 15, 2021, McPherson of ‘D’ Field Sophia was found lying motionless in a yard at ‘C’ Field Sophia.

It was reported that a woman telephoned the Police Command Center and reported that a man was seen lying in a yard with what appeared to be bloodstains on his body.

Police then arrived on the scene and discovered McPherson with a gunshot wound to his left side chest and another on his right hand.

The investigators later found out that McPherson was in a “triangular love affair”. Investigations were conducted and the four persons were arrested and charged.
