Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

Eight persons, including a medical doctor, were Tuesday charged with the gunning down of well-known gold miner, Deon Stoll.

They were not required to plea to the indictable offence, and were refused bail and remanded to prison.

Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan ordered them to return to court on November 15.

Four of the men – Shane “Demon” Morgan also known as Delon Morgan, Roberto Sankar, Wayne St. Hill and Steve Rollox – were charged with the murder of Stoll in the course or furtherance of a robbery.

The four other men – Odessa “Baby” St. Hill, Dr. Alanzo Dos Santos, Duncan “Blackboy” Vanvield and Keith McKenzie – were charged with accessory to the crime.

Dos Santos, investigators said, treated one of the persons who Stoll shot during the attempted robbery.

The incident occurred outside El Dorado Trading, a licenced gold dealership, at 63 Da Silva Street, Newtown, Kitty, Georgetown on October 14.

Stoll died while receiving treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
