San Juan jeweller charged for murder

A 43-year-old San Juan jeweller was charged with the murder of
Romero Serrette. Nathan Tenia, of Prizgar Road, San Juan, appeared before a Port of Spain Magistrate yesterday, to answer to the charge.

The Court heard that on Saturday 19th October first responders responded to a report of wounding at Dainty Road, San Juan. On their arrival at 2:47am on the said date, they discovered the body of the deceased lying motionless on the western side of the road, with what appeared to be a wound to the head and a blood oozing from the wound. The District Medical Officer was contacted and after examination, pronounced the deceased dead at the scene.

Tenia was charged by PC Chad Bushell, also of HBI Region 2 on
Friday 8th November 2019, following advice received from Director
of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard, SC, on that date.

The matter was adjourned to Monday 9th December 2019.
