28-year-old Kacey Heyliger of 42 Shell Road Kitty, was this morning charged with the murder of a 60-year-old building contractor who was gunned down and relieved of his motorcycle.
The taxi driver this morning appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Heyliger was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on December 7, 2020, at Garnett Street, Kitty, Georgetown, he murdered Peter Gonsalves in the course or furtherance of a robbery.
The accused was represented by attorney-at-law Dextor Todd. The lawyer told the court that his client is a father of three and has no pending matters. The Chief Magistrate remanded him to prison until January 11, 2021.
Gonsalves of Pere Street Kitty was killed on December 7, 2020, at around 21:45 hrs on Garnett Street, Newtown, Kitty in front of a Liquor Restaurant.
Investigations disclosed that Gonsalves was the owner of a black and white XR motorcycle bearing registration number CJ 600 and valued at $450, 000. It was reported that Gonsalves was proceeding west along Garnett Street when he was attacked by two men on a motorcycle, one of whom was armed with a handgun. The gunman shot him several times after which he fell to the ground.
Further information revealed that after the victim fell, he was relieved of his motorcycle by the man who was a pillion rider. The men then made good their escape. Gonsalves was pronounced dead at the scene by Emergency Medical Technicians.
Heyliger was charged with the 2018 murder of America Street, Georgetown money changer Shawn Nurse called ‘Fabulous’. Following a Preliminary Inquiry in the Magistrate Courts, the charge against him was discharged due to insufficient evidence.
