Samuel Stewart, called “Sammy,” was on Tuesday slapped with a 17-year jail sentence for the unlawful killing of 25-year-old Patrick Wilson, also called “Boy.”
Stewart, a former bus conductor of Salton Village, Corentyne, was sentenced by Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall in the Berbice High Court.
Last month, a 12-member jury found Stewart guilty of unlawfully killing Wilson on June 16, 2019, at Limlair Village.
According to media reports, at about 23:00h on the day in question, Stewart and Raynol’s cousin were involved in a dispute.
In the height of the exchange, Raynol intervened but received a stab to the chest by Stewart, who was armed with a knife. The injured man attempted to run but only made it a short distance before collapsing on a heap of sand.
