The issue of an appeal for four convicts was postponed to January
Robb Street grandmother’s murder…
Kaieteur News – The appeal case for the four men convicted of killing 72-year-old Clementine Fiedtkou-Parris, known as Robb Street’s grandmother, has been postponed until next January.
Fiedtkou-Parris of Lot 42 Robb Street, Georgetown, was killed at her home on June 30, 2011, as part of a money conspiracy, and was involved in a property dispute.
The matter arose in the Court of Appeal yesterday but was adjourned after the attorney-in-law, Mark Conway, indicated to the court that he had not been properly detained by one of the convicted men, Cleon Hinds. He explained that the Hinds family had asked for some time to accrue the legal fees. He said they should be ready in January.
The other men also had problems with their legal representation; their lawyers were absent from the virtual hearing except for the attorney, George Thomas, who represents Orwin Hinds. In that regard, the Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards, warned the parties to ensure they had the necessary representation and adjourned the matter until January 28, 2021.
Back in 2015, Justice Navindra Singh sentenced Orwin Hinds, known as “Red Man ,, of Burnham Boulevard, Mocha, East Bank Demerara; Kevin October, titled “Troy,” of Second Street, Agricola, Demerara East Bank; Cleon Hinds and Roy Jacobs, known as “Chippie” or “Black Boy” from Evans Street, Charlestown, each served 81 years in prison for the vicious assault.
The men must serve a minimum of 45 years in prison before they are eligible for parole.
According to the facts of the case, on the day of the fatal shooting, two men entered the woman’s yard and asked for an audience with her. After hearing the persons request, he moved to the door. He opened a shotgun at her, hitting her several times about the body. After the shooting, the assailants managed to escape in a waiting car.
