Updated: May 28, 2022

Jairam Chaitram, one of the accused in the 2016 Black Bush triple murder has pleaded guilty to three counts of murder.

Chaitram, 20, his father Carlton Chaitram, Tameshwar Jagmohan, and Rakesh Karamchand, all of Berbice, have been accused of the July 2016 murders of Pawan Chandradeo, his 15-year-old son, Jaikarran Chandradeo, and his brother-in-law Naresh Rooplall.

The quartet had denied all involvement in the crime when they were arraigned earlier this month before Justice Sandil Kissoon and a jury at the Berbice High Court.

However, during the trial, which continued today, Chaitram pleaded guilty. Justice Kissoon has deferred sentencing until February 10. The trial against the three other co-accused is currently ongoing.

It is alleged that between July 20 and 21, 2016 in Berbice, they murdered the trio.

The lifeless bodies of Chandradeos and Rooplall were found days after they left their homes to go on a fishing trip in Black Bush Polder, in Region Six.
