Malabar double murder:

The Director of Public Prosecutions last night gave investigating officers instructions to charge a 24-year-old suspect for the double murders of Haffiza Rose Mohammed and 13-year-old Videsh Subar.

The Arima man will be taken before an Arima magistrate on Monday.

However, three more suspects remained in police custody last night as investigations continued. Those suspects are a 32-year-old who was rearrested on Wednesday night, a 25-year-old Sangre Grande man and Mohammed’s 54-year-old relative.

Mohammed, 56, and Subar were both found tied up and their throats slit at Mohammed’s home at Ajim Baksh Street, Malabar, on June 27.

On Wednesday morning, one of the first suspects to be detained for questioning, Kendall “Sausage” Garcia, 23, was shot during an alleged exchange of gunfire with police officers from the Central Division who had responded to a robbery in progress call.

Garcia was a known drugs and firearms offender and had two addresses - 40 Gokool Street, New City, Valencia and at LP645, Eastern Main Road, Maturita Village, Arima.
