A thirty-two-year-old man from the village of Munich, charged in connection with last Friday’s murder of fellow villager, made his first appearance before the Grenville Magistrate Court on Tuesday on a charge of non-capital murder.
With no legal representation the accused man, Kimron Abraham, was not required to plead as the charge of non-capital murder was read to him by the presiding magistrate. He is expected to return to court on May 7th 2020.
Abraham has been accused of causing the death of Wilbur Alexis aka Zaire, whose lifeless body was discovered on the street in Munich last Friday, bleeding from several chop wounds to his body.
Informer learned both the accused man and the victim had long-standing issues over missing produce on a farm belonging to Alexis. Sources said days before his body was discovered Alexis allegedly confronted Abraham and warned him about trespassing on his property.
Last Friday’s killing, which took place at a time when the country was under a State of Emergency that triggered a 24-hour lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of the COVID-19 spread, brings to eight the number of homicides for the year 2020.
If convicted Abraham faces life in prison.
