Men in court for MALABAR double murder

A 35-year-old man appeared before an Arima Magistrate yesterday for the murders of Haffiza Mohammed and Vedesh Subar in Malabar last month.

The man, Devon Edwards, who is a a technician from Malabar, was the third suspect to be charged for the murders.

Edwards was charged with two counts of murder and two counts of robbery with violence after Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard SC, gave advice to the police to lay the charge.

Edwards was charged along with 54-year-old Solomon Baksh, and 25-year-old Wayne Liverpool, who appeared in court on July 17.

On June 28, Mohammed and Subar were found, bound and gagged and with their throats slit at their home on Ajim Baksh Trace Malabar.

In an earlier report it was suggested that the man was charged for a Maloney murder, when in fact, it was the murder in Malabar. Newsday apologises for the inconvenience.
