An Evesham man was, on Friday, brought before the Serious Offences Court in Kingstown charged with his father’s murder, the second alleged patricide in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.

Keron Samuel, 19, was not required to plead to the indictable charge when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne.

He was charged that between Sept. 29 and Oct. 1, 2019, at Evesham, with malice aforethought, he caused the death of George Benjamin Samuel by an unlawful act.

The body of the 56-year-old man, who went by the alias Coban, was found in a shallow grave on Oct. 1 about 100 yards from the house where he lived with Keron and his other son.

The body was discovered after Coban’s widow, Iris Samuel, who lived between two houses in the Marriaqua village, organised a search for him after not having seen him for three days.

Iris and her daughter Iasha Samuel along with another woman attended Friday’s court hearing.

Iasha cried inaudibly, using a kerchief to cover her mouth, as tears streamed down her face, as her brother stood in the dock.

In July, Clinton Cambridge, 22, of Sion Hill was charged with murder in connection with the stabbing death of his father.

Clint Miller-Boucher, 55, also of Sion Hill, is alleged to have been stabbed multiple times in his home village resulting in his death.

Cambridge is said to have a history of mental health illness.

That matter is also before the court.

    PROBING WIFE – SOLVING HUSBAND’S MURDER – WOMAN OF THE MONTH

    Swift action by a ‘…Probing Wife’ has ‘…Solved the Murder of her Husband.’

    She has made light and easy, the work of the Police by her ‘…proactive action and providing several clues, most critical ‘…Changing front door curtain.’

    She had much more than suspicion.

    She had gut feelings that one of their two sons had committed the heinous crime.

    He may have been everything else, ‘…husband; …father and farmer,’ but not housekeeper.’

    She knew that ‘…changing curtains’ was not part of her husband’s domestic chores.

    When she probed into the ‘…changing of the front door curtain’ and the teenaged son said it was his father, she knew she could not even asked him ‘…When or why?’

    She knew that ‘…changing curtains’ was not part of his domestic chores.

    Grabbing her handbag, she left hastily, ‘…before a window curtain was changed.’

    She knew that when his body was exhumed from the shallow grave and the flexible ‘…Curtain Rod’ reportedly found wrapped around the neck of her deceased husband, their teenaged son was the deadly killer of his father.

    Not only shall the Police so do, but also this news portal shall now declare her ‘…Woman of the Month.’

    But how can he take a dead man out of d house and bury him he had to get help to do that so it cant be just him alone

  3. Queen you are so right.
    Christian is saying something.

    What really could cause a son to kill his father, then buried his body.
    That spiritual, that demon is hovering over our nation and our young sons are mentally diminishing.

    Much prayer is needed.
