Cop's brother charged with setting man on fire

The brother of a police officer appeared before the court for allegedly setting a man on fire.

Fisherman Richie Rebiero, 36, of Moruga, appeared before Senior Magistrate Rae Roopchand charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Raymond La Fortune in Moruga, on Easter Monday.

The charge was laid by Cpl Woods.

Defence attorney Pe­tro­nilla Basdeo told the court that Rebiero had no pending or previous convictions. She also said her client was afraid as his brother was a hard-working police offic­er and should he not be granted bail, there could be a poten­tial threat for him in prison.

Robbers claim poverty drove them to crime

Two men who beat and robbed a Table­land fam­i­ly of more than $.5 mil­lion were each sen­tenced to four years in prison on Thurs­day.

One of their ac­com­plices was shot and killed by the po­lice. Nicholas Alexan­der, 22, and Josi­ah Bobb, 18, both of St Mar­garet’s Vil­lage, Clax­ton Bay, blamed pover­ty for their ac­tions and asked for a sec­ond chance.

They plead­ed guilty in the Rio Claro Mag­is­trates Court to three of­fences of rob­bery with vi­o­lence. Alexan­der al­so plead­ed guilty to pos­ses­sion of a firearm and am­mu­ni­tion.

They were among five men, armed with firearms, who ac­cost­ed a 56-year-old old gro­cery pro­pri­etor at his home around 9.20 pm on April 27.

Pros­e­cu­tor Sgt Shazeed Mo­hammed said he was struck on his face sev­er­al times with a gun. They tied him up and stole his $2,000 wrist watch. While they were ran­sack­ing the house, Mo­hammed said the man’s niece and nephew ar­rived home. They were ac­cost­ed by two of the in­trud­ers who forced them in­to their home.

'What have we become?' PM mourns murdered friend, wife

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley this morning shared his childhood memories of murdered Tobago resident, John Mills.

Mills, 69, and his wife of 40 years, Eulyn John, were found with their hands and feet bound and throats slit at their home at Buccoo New Road on Thursday.

The motive for the double murder has not yet been determine.

In a Facebook post, Rowley said he and Mills (John) grew up together in poverty, but violence and criminality were never part of their lives. And he questioned what had become of the next generation.

He wrote, “With my classmate and buddy John "Joker" Mills at our Alma Mater Bishop's High School last year. John and his wife were brutally slain by an intruder in their bedroom on Wednesday night in Tobago. What have we become? What are we producing as "the next generation"? John and I grew up together in poverty, with pride, but violence and criminality were never part of our life. Instead we shared lunch money and loved one another as we worked hard in the classroom and competed fiercely on the sports fields, honouring our parents, neighbours and respecting all adults.

‘April exploded into a bloodbath’

In a na­tion al­ready reel­ing from some of the high­est mur­der rates in the world, April proved to be the blood­i­est month this year.

Some 49 peo­ple were mur­dered in just 30 days. That rep­re­sent­ed a 25 per cent in­crease over the 39 peo­ple killed in April 2018, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cial da­ta from the Crime and Prob­lem Analy­sis Unit of the TTPS (see side box).

The killings came in clus­ters. Over the four-day East­er week­end, the death toll jumped by 11 when po­lice tal­lied homi­cides from un­re­lat­ed in­ci­dents. Five peo­ple were killed in 24 hours be­tween April 26 and 27. A fam­i­ly of four, in­clud­ing a sev­en-year-old girl, was found with their throats slit in a car in To­co on April 12. An­oth­er fam­i­ly of three was shot to death in their ve­hi­cle in Corinth on April 29.

“April ex­plod­ed in­to a blood­bath,” said crim­i­nol­o­gist Dau­rius Figueira, whose re­search spe­cialis­es in the drug trade.

As of April 30, the over­all homi­cide toll was 169, just five few­er over the same pe­ri­od in 2018. Mur­ders climbed from 120 at the end of March 2019 to 169 by the end of April, a 41 per cent in­crease.

The num­ber of homi­cides in April ex­ceed­ed the 2019 month­ly av­er­age of 42. If killings con­tin­ue at this rate, Trinidad and To­ba­go is on course to add to its grim track record of sur­pass­ing 500 mur­ders for a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year — and for the fourth time in the na­tion’s his­to­ry.

3 killed; cop, girl, 14, injured in Carenage shootout

Three peo­ple were killed and six oth­ers, in­clud­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer, were wound­ed dur­ing a shootout be­tween West­ern Di­vi­sion of­fi­cers and res­i­dents of Big Yard, Care­nage, this evening.

Res­i­dents said a teenage girl and the God­son of Prime Min­is­ter Dr Kei­th Row­ley were among the dead. How­ev­er, the names of the vic­tims are yet to be re­vealed.

The TTPS said in a state­ment that West­ern Di­vi­sion of­fi­cers on pa­trol in Care­nage were at­tempt­ing to ar­rest a sus­pect who was lim­ing on the street with a group of men when the in­ci­dent hap­pened. It said as the of­fi­cers were try­ing to ap­pre­hend the sus­pect, an­oth­er man drew a gun and opened fire on the of­fi­cers around 7.30 pm. It said a po­lice of­fi­cer was shot but the of­fi­cer re­turned fire, strik­ing the shoot­er. It added that in the ex­change of gun­fire three peo­ple were fa­tal­ly wound­ed.

The girl, 14, was said to have been walk­ing along the street when she was hit by a stray bul­let.

Res­i­dents said the ex­change of bul­lets sound­ed like "fire­works." How­ev­er, they are now call­ing for Com­mis­sion­er of Po­lice Gary Grif­fith to thor­ough­ly in­ves­ti­gate the ac­tion of the of­fi­cers.
