Princes Town man charged with murder

Monday, August 13, 2018

A Princes Town man will appear before a San Fernando Magistrate today charged with the murder of Curtis Marcano who was shot and left to die in a track near his home.

The shooting occurred on July 17 and Marcano succumbed to his injuries eight days later at the San Fernando General Hospital.

Homicide officers led by PC Lewis conducted investigations and arrested a 28-year-old man of Teesdale Road, Mandingo, Indian Walk. He spent the weekend in police custody. After investigations were completed, a file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions and instructions were given for a charge of murder to be laid.

Meanwhile, a man from Morvant and a woman from St James, who beat and robbed a Williamsville businessman on Thursday, will also appear in court.

The couple is believed to have robbed the businessman around 3.42pm. The victim, 37, told police he was conducting sales when two people entered his business place and announced a robbery.

He handed over a quantity of cash and in the struggle that ensued the victim was beaten with a piece of iron. The assailants escaped in a silver Nissan Tiida which was later intercepted in Ste Madeleine by members of the Rapid Response Unit and the Southern Division Task Force.

The couple spent the weekend in police custody and will appear in court today.
