Drumming instructor, Lennox “Two Colours” Wayne and taxi driver, Melroy Davis were Monday arraigned for the murder of young woman for GUY$2.5 million.
However, the mastermind was not charged in connection with the offence- the gunning down of 18-year old Ashmini Harriram on July 10, 2014 on the Lusigan Railway Embankment Road.
Investigators believed that Harriram was shot dead and her phone snatched from her moments after she exited a minibus because she might have leaked information to anti-drug agents that would have led to major drug seizures.
Wayne, an instructor at Magic Fingers Drumming School, and Davis were not required to plea to the indictable offence. They were unrepresented, but were expected to be provided with lawyers by the Legal Aid Clinic.
Vigilance Magistrate, Zamena Ally remanded the duo to prison until October 3, 2014.
Wayne, of Diamond, East Bank Demerara, allegedly shot the young woman while Davis of Wortmanville, Georgetown allegedly drove the car to and from the scene of the crime and collected her cellular phone.
Crime sleuths said Wayne and Davis never received any of the money that they had been promised in exchange for the alleged contract killing.
