Alban “Indian” Thomas, 65, Shopowner, of Keartons, Barrouallie, and his son Percival Thomas appeared before the Serious Offences Court last Friday and were jointly charged in connection with the death of 42-year-old Edgerton Richards Jr., of Brighton.

Reports state that on March 22, 2008, at approximately 7:15am, Richards entered Thomas’ shop and both men had an argument, which led to Richards being shot. He was rushed to the Barrouallie clinic where he succumbed to his injuries.

The Preliminary Inquiry into the matter will begin on August 5, 2008.
