Man gets time served for 2016 home invasion killing at Herstelling


Twenty-six-year-old Devon Chacon was yesterday released from prison after Justice Navindra Singh sentenced him to time served for the 2016 killing of father of two, Abdool Ameer Subrati whom he shot during a robbery.

Chacon was initially indicted for murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser count of manslaughter, accepting that on October 20, 2016 at Herstelling, East Bank Demerara, he unlawfully killed Subrati during the furtherance of a robbery.

Mitigating on his behalf was defence attorney Ronald Daniels who told the court that his client was deeply remorseful for what he had done and takes full responsibility for his actions
