Dressed in a white t-shirt and camouflage pants, Water Street businessman, Randy Jagdeo stood before Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry to face the charge of murder related to the shooting death of his friend, Biker Kirk Davis.
Jagdeo was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge and stood quietly in the courthouse as the murder charge was read out to him. He was remanded to prison until November 21, 2013, when he will make his next court appearance.
The Prosecution’s case is that on September 4, 2013 at Eccles on the East Bank of Demerara, the businessman shot and killed Kirk Davis while Davis sat in the backseat of the businessman’s car as the two were having a conversation about a reported love triangle involving the businessman’s wife.
A post mortem report found that the young biker was shot 16 times to his body. Some of those shots were at very close range. It is believed that after he was shot in the vehicle, he was dragged out and shot additional times as his blood soaked body laid in front of his Eccles home.
The Police had issued a Wanted Bulletin for the businessman after he was fingered as the shooter. He was on the run for over a month and only turned himself into the local Police on Monday, two weeks after the Crime Chief indicated that the Police Force was turning to Interpol for assistance in tracking him down. It is believed that he may have been hiding in neighbouring Suriname.
