Karasabai resident to be sentenced for killing fellow villager – News Room Guyana
Yuri Nicholas, the man who pleaded guilty to unlawfully killing his fellow villager in May 2019, will return to the Demerara High Court on February 5 to be sentenced.
Leonard was reportedly stabbed to death after an argument had broken out among some men with whom he had been imbibing at a bar in the village of Karasabai, South Pakaraimas, North Rupununi, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).
According to him, Leonard emerged holding a piece of wood. He claimed that after he and his friends got into a fight with Leonard, “Bruce” pulled out a knife and stabbed Leonard in the chest, since they were unable to defeat him, due to his strength. He told the Police that they continued beating Leonard, and when he fell, they stomped him on his head and abdomen. When people started coming out of their homes, he said, they ran away.
