Bibi Shareema Gopaul was sentenced to 106 years and Barry Small was sentenced to 96 years by Justice Navindra Singh.
The decomposed body of Gopaul, a student of Queen’s College, was found in a suitcase in a creek along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway on October 2, 2010.
Along with her remains were a passport and a bank card that bore her name. The suitcase was wrapped with a rope and dumbbells in an apparent effort to keep the body submerged.
She had been previously reportedly missing from her home at Leonora, West Coast Demerara.
