A man stabbed his younger brother to death during an argument at Sophia, East Coast Demerara.
The Guyana Police Force identified the dead man as 23-year old Dexter Jules of ‘B’ Field, Sophia.
Police said that after the assailant rushed Jules to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival, he attempted to flee but was arrested by civilians. “The suspect was apprehended by public spirited citizens and handed over to the police. He is in custody assisting with the investigation,” police said.
Jules was stabbed to his left side chest by his brother, Orin Jules.
Sources told Demerara Waves Online News that the killing stemmed from an argument over Jules’ insistence that his 27-year old brother- the murder
accused- should not enter the family’s shop because he habitually took things without paying.
The Guyana Police Force lauded the efforts of citizens who continue to support law enforcement.
