A 37-year-old Whiteland man appeared before a Siparia magistrate yesterday charged with the murder of his neighbour Daveanand Ramsingh last April.
A release from the police said Rishi Gopie was charged with murder on Sunday by PC Kevon Nelson after receiving advice from Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Joan Honore-Paul. Ramsingh was found lying in a pool of blood outside his Penal home with chop marks after he reportedly got into a heated argument with another man. He was taken to the hospital, where he died.
Investigations were conducted by Insp Darryl Coorie of the Homicide Bureau Region 3.
