What was supposed to be a festive holiday drink turned tragic when a 33-year-old gold miner allegedly stabbed his friend to death during a row over alcohol at Waramuri Mission in Region One (Barima-Waini).Exactly one week following the incident, the miner was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan on Wednesday when he was not required to plead to the indictable charge.According to the prosecution’s case, Navin Harris murdered Rondea Peters, called “Ninja”, on December 20, 2017 at Waramuri Mission, Moruca in the North West District.Reports indicate that the two men were imbibing when the now deceased man accused Harris of stealing his liquor. An argument ensued and quickly escalated to a physical scuffle during which Peters was reportedly stabbed to death with a knife.The case was transferred to be heard at the Aquaro Magistrate’s Court in Region-One.
