A Corentyne farmer who earlier this month pleaded guilty to the 2019 murders of a Canadian hotelier and his watchman at Number 63 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, was yesterday sentenced to life in prison on both counts.

During the sentencing, the court heard that a statement from the convict said that he was hired by the hotelier’s overseas-based brother to kill him for $1m.

Alvin Durant also known as “Alvin Bhola” and “Blacka”, 51, of Number 65 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, had appeared before Justice Sandil Kissoon at the High Court in Berbice where he had entered his guilty plea earlier this month.
