Vaux brothers released on parole after 26 years in prison over murder


After spending 26 years behind bars for the murder of a man whom they strangled and stabbed to the neck, brothers Daniel and Kornel Vaux were yesterday released on parole after Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan signed licences for their release which was recommended by the Parole Board. Also granted his freedom and leaving prison yesterday—after 27 years, was former school teacher Lallman Mulai who had chopped and beaten a man with whom he had an argument over cows grazing on his (Mulai’s) land.

Lallman, now 59 years old, had been convicted along with his brother Bharatraj Mulai for the 1992 killing of Doodnauth Seeram at Mahaica, East Coast Demerara. However, Bharatraj died in prison two years ago. Like the Vaux brothers, the Mulai siblings were sentenced to death following their convictions. In January of 2013, however, they all had their sentences commuted to life imprisonment.(Stabroeknews)…[+]
