first_img“Big Foot” murder trialThe Police Caution Statement (CS) of Bryan “Big Foot” Leitch was read out on Tuesday at the High Court, where the 12-member jury heard that the accused was allegedly “sorry” for his actions.Leitch is being tried for the murder of South Central Hotel’s owner, Joseph Jagdeo, whose body was found bound and gagged at the guesthouse on November 14, 2013 in Room 10.Police Sergeant Keith Conway, who assisted with the murder investigation, took the stand before Justice Sandhill Kissoon on Tuesday. The detective, who was stationed at the Grove Police Station, testified that he had taken the accused man from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to the Brickdam Police Station on November 30, 2013 where he put the murder allegation to him.Conway claimed that Leitch initially responded: “I don’t know anything about any murder.” However, the next day, on December 1, now retired Police Sergeant Phillip Bowman took the CS in his presence.According to the document which Conway read out in court, Leitch had stated that on the morning in question, Jagdeo came to his room and told him to leave which angered him.“I was vexed and I tell he and I tie he hand and put a cloth around he mouth and tie it, I push he under the bed and put the room key on the bed. I then go to the office and took out he cell phone; I sorry for what happen, I didn’t go to kill he,” the excerpt from the CS stated.Under cross-examination, Sergeant Conway observed that he never enquired from Leitch if he could read or write and could not say if Sergeant Bowman made a similar enquiry. However, the witness maintained that the defendant looked at the CS and seemed to be reading it.Leitch was said to be the last known person to stay in Room 10. The prosecution contends that the accused committed the crime between November 13 and 14, 2013 at South Road, Georgetown.Now retired Police Sergeant Bowman, a key witness in the case, left for the United States of America in August 2017, and there was no evidence that he returned to Guyana. Several key witnesses have not been presented by the prosecution despite public notices requesting them to appear at court.State Pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh, who was able to testify on Tuesday, gave the hotelier’s cause of death as haemorrhage caused by blunt trauma to the head, compounded with suffocation and compression of the neck. The doctor also told the jury that Jagdeo’s neck and spine were fractured.State Counsels Mandell Moore and Lisa Cave are presenting the prosecution’s case while Leitch is represented by Attorneys Hewley Griffith and Lawrence Harris. Justice Kissoon adjourned the matter to next Monday. (Shemuel Fanfair)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Salah set a new record for Premier League goals in one season with 32 strikes © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, May 13 – Mohamed Salah scored a record-breaking 32nd goal of the Premier League season on Sunday as the Liverpool star set a new mark for the most goals in a 38-game campaign.Salah went into the last day of the season at Anfield with a share of the record alongside Alan Shearer (Blackburn in 1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United in 2007-08) and Luis Suarez (Liverpool in 2013-14). But the Egypt forward needed only 26 minutes to make the record his personal property as he produced a clinical left-footed finish from inside the Brighton penalty area.Salah, who was voted the Premier League’s Player of the Year earlier in the day, has now scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season.Shearer (Newcastle in 1993-94) and Andy Cole (Manchester United in 1993-94) jointly hold the Premier League record of 34 goals in a 42-match season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img“The decision is always difficult because of the talent of the players we have,” Lopetegui said.“We have opted for three other players who had different assets and including four players up front was not something we wanted to do.”Two more Chelsea players also missed out as Marcos Alonso and Cesc Fabregas were not included in the 23-man group.Morata’s absence was the stand-out decision, however, even if it was not an entirely surprising one given the 25-year-old’s dramatic dip in form.After scoring seven goals in his first seven games for Chelsea, a back injury seemed to affect his confidence. Morata has scored only three times in 22 games since the turn of the year.“I’ve talked to the players I had to talk to,” Lopetegui said. “I’m not going to name anybody, but there are players who had to find out from me that they were not going to be on the list.”In contrast, Aspas and Moreno have been in excellent form for Celta Vigo and Valencia respectively, with Aspas the top Spanish scorer in La Liga on 22 goals.Costa is expected to start when Spain open up against Portugal in Group B on June 15 but Aspas, with his speed and direct running, remains an attractive option.Alonso only made his debut in a friendly against Argentina in March and lost out to Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal. Fabregas fell behind Spain’s impressive wealth of options in midfield, which will include Sergio Busquets, Saul Niguez, Koke, Thiago Alcantara, Andres Iniesta, David Silva, Isco, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez.Manchester United’s David de Gea was included as expected, along with fellow goalkeepers Pepe Reina and Kepa Arrizabalaga.Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta did make it in, as did Monreal. Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos, Nacho and Jordi Alba complete Spain’s group of defenders.“I’ve had several doubts, making a list of 23 is very difficult,” Lopetegui said. “But we have decided this was the most balanced decision and the one we think will help us most at the World Cup.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Alvaro Morata has been left out of the Spain squad for the World Cup © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKMADRID, Spain, May 21 – Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was left out of Spain’s World Cup squad, announced on Monday.Morata paid the price for a disappointing debut season in the Premier League as Spain coach Julen Lopetegui picked Iago Aspas and Rodrigo Moreno up front, along with Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.last_img read more
