EIGHT years after businesswoman Bibi Shaniza Khan-Bhola was brutally murdered in her Rock Creek, Region Seven (Cuyuni/Mazaruni) shop, her killer has finally confessed to the gruesome crime.

The convicted man, Nathan Anthony Stoute, formerly of Helena No. 2 Mahaica, East Coast Demerara (ECD) was arraigned before Justice Jo-Ann Barlow for the murder indictment.

Stoute, 24, opted to plead guilty to the capital offence, admitting that, between February 26 – 27, 2014, he murdered Khan-Bhola during the course or furtherance of a robbery.

Stoute’s sentencing was deferred until December 7, 2022 for a probation report.

The Guyana Chronicle had reported that Bhola, of La Parfait Harmonie, West Bank Demerara (WBD), was bludgeoned and stabbed multiple times by two men who reportedly carted off her cash, gold and other valuables.

The gruesome discovery was made on February 27, 2014, after someone had looked through a window, and saw Khan-Bhola lying motionless on her bedroom floor.

Stoute was employed by the now-dead woman. He fled the jurisdiction to Suriname after the murder.

According to reports, Khan-Bhola had even bought equipment for the men, to assist them in prospecting. It is alleged that the men also sold the equipment after killing her.

Investigators arrested Stoute on December 31, 2018, at a Berbice location after he had returned to Guyana.
