Dad charged for son’s murder

A 61-year-old man is expected to appear virtually before an Arima Magistrate on Monday charged with the murder of his son, Allan Stoute.

Astro Stoute of Mt. Pleasant Road, Arima, was charged with the offence on Friday following advice received from Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard SC.

Stoute, 38, a labourer, of the same address, was at his home on Thursday 22nd October when he got into an argument with his father.

During the altercation, Allan proceeded to his vehicle, retrieved a cutlass and approached the relative in a menacing manner.

Astro responded by drawing his licensed firearm and discharging two rounds hitting the victim about the body.

Allan was taken to the Arima Health Facility where he was pronounced dead.

Astro was arrested at the scene and handed over the licensed pistol, two magazines, 23 rounds of ammunition and his Firearm Users License to investigators.
