'Shaka' charged with Toco murder


A TOCO fisherman who appeared in court yesterday for illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, will reappear in court today charged with murder.

Tyron Marryshow, also known as “Shaka”, was slapped with the new charge on Monday hours after he appeared before a Justice of the Peace in the Sangre Grande Magistrates court.

Marryshow, 30, was charged with the murder of David Calendar, who is also a fisherman of Toco.

Calender, 38, of Cumana Village, was a short distance away from his home when he got into an altercation with another man over an electrical part for a boat.

Calendar was shot multiple times and succumbed to the injuries.

Investigations were led by ASP (Ag.) Windel Flaviney, of Homicide Bureau of Investigations, Region III, and both the murder and the weapon charges were laid by Sgt. Harridath Sookdeo, of Toco Police Station.
