A Union Island man has been charged with the murder of fellow islander, Richardo Stewart, who died last Saturday, three days after being stabbed.
On Wednesday, Denroy Tittle, of Ashton, Union Island, was brought before the Serious Offences Court, in Kingstown, charged with murdering Stewart in Union Island on June 15.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge.
Prosecutor Corporal Shamrock Pierre told the court that the investigator had so far identified eight witnesses.
The prosecution asked for three months, before the commencement of a preliminary inquiry.
Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne remanded Tittle into custody until Sept. 9, for the preliminary hearing.
Stewart died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital last Saturday after undergoing surgery in connection with stabs wounds he sustained allegedly during an altercation with Tittle last week Wednesday, June 12.
I am really wondering if the deceased had received immediate and proper medical attention if he would have survived. He had to wait on the wall for a period of time, before the ambulance arrived. It should have been there waiting.
There is a great need for a National Health Insurance Scheme in SVG, as part of a plan to upgrade the medical facilities and services in the country.
Such a sad state of affairs, these incidents rarely occur in Union Island, hope it does not develop into a trend. We need to start up some “No to violence and Crime rally/marches throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines”. The unnecessary violence needs to be drastically reduced.
It starts with our children, what we allow them to watch, and listen too. The secondary school had a good program in February on not bullying. We must teach our children first. Otherwise all will be lost. Just look at the outside world, it is coming apart.
