Fisherman Tyronne Marryshaw appeared in court yesterday charged with the murder of another fisherman following a dispute of a missing boat light.

Marryshaw, 30, of L’Anse Noire Village, Toco, appeared before Sangre Grande Magistrate Debra Quintyne yesterday.

Marryshaw is accused of murdering 38-year-old David Callender of Unity Lane, Anglais Road, Cumana, on January 14. The charge was laid by Sgt Sookdeo of Toco Police Station.

Marryshaw bowed his head as Quintyne read the charge to him. He was represented by attorneys Patrick Godson Phillip and Nadia Scott.

Marryshaw was remanded in custody at Golden Grove Prison and will return to court on February 19.

On Monday, Marryshow appeared before the same magistrate charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition.

He was granted $70,000 bail on that charge but was rearrested before leaving the holding cell at Sangre Grande and charged with murder following instructions from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
