Murder accused denied bail

Murder accused, Raymond Popo, 63, was denied bail when he appeared in court today after being charged with the chopping death of Morne Panache, Dennery, resident Clayton Justin.

Justin, 49,  is reported to have received a slash wound to the neck  after noon on March 2, 2017, following a dispute at a bar in Dennery.

He was pronounced dead on the scene afterwards by a medical examiner.

Popo appeared today in Vieux Fort before Magistrate, Robert Innocent, and was remanded in custody at Bordelais Correctional Facility.

The murder accused, who hails from Gadette, Dennery, is scheduled to make another appearance in court on April 3, 2017.

    Tax payers should not be feeding these criminals, they need to be punished by death.

      I have seen that video….thought it wasn’t here in SLU. The way that guy was soo calm about almost chopping off the victims head….is alarming.
      Jail for the balance of his demonic life.

    With everybody saying that he should be hanged.I really don’t agree..because remember that the men were engaged in fighting and the man took hit with a stool both men could have ended up eather way. There are more greater deliberate crimes on helpless people.such as the poor let be realistic here..

    Heartless old man.. No punishment is more fitting to him than slashing him with that very same cutlass on the neck.

    We are always quick to judge. No one knows what happened. There were no witness except the two of them and God. He is not crazy to do such a thing. He was hit with a stool, tell me who likes to feel their skin on fire. We need to put our self in his shoes. What if it was us. I know he is not a heartless man like you’ll keep saying.

    This idiot has the rage & appearance of a gorilla (“flared nostrils”). He must have just climbed down out of the trees the day before he killed. No sympathy for you! Send out a “Tweet” for the hangman.

    Alcohol is one of satan the devil greatest weapon.I mean the poor man life ended in one of the most gruesome way and yet we have a reason why it should have happened and why it should not have happened.A man is dead as many others,life cut down short,how about we walk in these people shoes,no one ones to die.The weak shall perish and suffer.He suffering now.And i love it.Monsters hiding in plain clothes but wearing the mark of the beast.No bail put the demon in a dungeon with chains.

    But elderly men used to drink alcohol quite a lot long ago, yet they were not killing each other. I have seen drunk men fighting each other while liming in rum shops, and I was always amused, because they were punching each other, and half of the time the punches would miss. These fights were like comic shows. What has caused the change now?
