A labourer of Linden who was chopped as a result of intervening died as a result of cirrhosis, hemorrhage, and shock due to a chop wound on his arm. This is according to Dr. Nehaul Singh.
Keno Griffith also known as `Tuckey’, a 36-year-old labourer, of Old Kara Kara, Mackenzie, Linden died at the Georgetown Public Hospital on Monday.
Police had said that the 26-year-old suspect, Rochino Maison, has since been charged and remanded on an attempted murder charge last week.
According to reports, a female resident of Kara Kara had a misunderstanding with Maison, during which he squeezed her breasts after which she spat on him. The man then became annoyed and reportedly threw a bucket of water on the woman.
Griffith rushed to the woman’s aid and an argument ensued between him and Maison. The argument escalated into a scuffle during which Maison reportedly armed himself with a cutlass, which he used to chop Griffith to his arm and head. The body was later handed over to the relatives on Wednesday morning for burial.
