GEORGETOWN Guyana, Wednesday October 30, 2019 – A medical practitioner and a mother of two along with two of her relatives were among eight people who appeared in court in Guyana yesterday, facing charges related to the death of a gold miner who was gunned down in the capital earlier this month.
The 33-year-old Dr Alonzo Dos Santos, who is also a second lieutenant in the Guyana Defence Force; Odessa St. Hill, a 37-year-old mother of two and graphic artist who is also the sister of one murder accused and cousin of another; Duncan Vanveild, 36-year-old welder; and taxi driver Keith McKenzie were jointly charged with being an accessory after the fact.
Facing the charge of murdering Deon Stoll were: 38-year-old graphic artist Wayne St. Hill – Odessa’s brother; Shane ‘Demon’ Morgan, a 33-year-old graphic artist and cousin of the St. Hill siblings; Roberto Sankar, a 28-year-old businessman; and Steve Rollox, a 38-year-old taxi driver.
They were all remanded to prison until November 15, 2019 when they next appear in court.
Stoll was shot during a robbery attack outside the El Dorado trading company in Georgetown on October 14. He had engaged in a shootout with the bandits and wounded one of them.
It is alleged that Dr Dos Santos treated the injured robber at Vanveild’s home.
