‘Baby’ gets life sentence for murdering Number 68 fisherman



Levan Chanderpaul


Munilall Sarjoo was on Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Levan Chanderpaul, whose body was found buried in the Number 68 Village, Corentyne backlands in 2016.

Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall handed down the sentence at the High Court in Berbice, where she ordered that Sarjoo, called ‘Baby’ and ‘Long Hair,’ must serve 25 years before becoming eligible for parole.

Chanderpaul, 26, a fisherman of Lot 116 Number 68 Village, was found bound with  chop wounds about his body on August 24, 2016, two days after he was reported missing.
