Fish vendor gets five years for beating man with hammer

Compton Fecker

Forty-nine-year-old fish vendor, Compton Fecker was yesterday handed a 5-year sentence even after paying $500,000 in compensation to a man whom he had beaten with a hammer back in 2015, rendering him partially visually impaired.

On January 15th, a jury unanimously found Fecker, called ‘Chappy,’ guilty of feloniously wounding Alvin Melville on March 19th, 2015 at Parika, East Bank Essequibo.

His sentencing had, however, been deferred for a probation report.
