A 40-year-old farmer was on Tuesday sentenced to 12 years behind bars over the 2018 Boxing Day killing of a Brazilian man.
The sentence was imposed on Darrell Williams, also known as ‘Fox’ by High Court Judge Brassington Reynolds.
Initially, Williams was indicted for the capital offence of murder but opted to plead guilty to the lesser count of manslaughter.
He admitted that on December 26, 2018, at Moco Moco Village, Central Rupununi, he unlawfully killed 44-year-old Elvis Aulicio of Bon Fim, Brazil.
Reports are that on the day in question, the men were at a birthday party when Williams accused Aulicio of stealing his haversack with ‘labba’ meat.
As a result, Williams became annoyed and followed Aulicio into the Moco Moco, Savannah, where he dealt him a stab to his neck before escaping. The 44-year-old man was found on a track in the open Savannah with wounds to his back and forehead.
