One of two brothers charged with murder to be sentenced after he pleads guilty

(L-R) Jeremiah and Randolph Gustave

The fate of two brothers charged with the July 5, 2017, murder of Glen Joseph Alphonse is in the hands of High Court Judge, Justice Richard Floyd and the other, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

This, as Jerimiah Gustave has pleaded guilty to the murder of Alphonse while his co-accused, Randolph Gustave has pleaded not guilty.

On the aforementioned date in 2017, 29-year-old Alponse was approached and shot in the chest whilst on a public bus in Eggleston.

The incident which is said to have occurred about 1:30 p.m was done in the presence of other passengers aboard the vehicle.

The Giraudel man was transported to the then Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) where he was medically examined and pronounced dead.

Subsequent to the shooting, the police were in search of the Gustave brothers who were said to have been in hiding for over a week. However, on July 13, 2017, the men surrendered to the police in Eggleston accompanied by their attorney.

In 2021, at their arraignment, the brothers had pleaded not guilty to murder. However, earlier this month when the pair appeared before Justice Floyd, Jerimiah changed his plea.

Following guilty plea, the presiding Judge ordered psychiatric and social inquiry reports for the convict by November 25, and set sentencing for December 2, 2022.

As it relates to Randolph, the office of the DPP is to decide on the way forward with his case.

    Hang both b*****ds or by firing squad they must not get away with a mild reprimand or punishment, in other words put them to sleep six feet under like they did to their victim on the public bus.

    This is still a very painful situation for me, Glen being my nephew, the child of the closest sister to me. I can feel her grief, up to today.

    These two boys took the Life of my nephew and it does not matter how many years they spend behind bars, it will never be justification for taking my nephew’s Life from him.

    They had no right to do that, especially that they did it through nothing but cold mischief and the devil’s conduct of wickedness.

    The unfair part is that one of them is allowed to plead not guilty, so why was he hiding with his brother, if he thought he was innocent of the crime?

    But God Almighty of Heaven and Earth is above all Authority and Power of the Earth, it is Justice alone that must prevail. By my faith I will continue to call upon Him to exercise His fair Justice.

    When it comes to me and WILFUL murderers, i have no face…I am one of those if only i had the power, i would bring back the gallows for all wilful murderers…Just take a gun and shoot a man, and i send you to prison? No way, you all would have to think twice.Why do you believe its going as far as shooting at our hospitals now? Dominica is quickly deteriorating into a no law kind of state…You kill and you are serving 10, 12 or 14 years…??
    Pure CRAP, you would be hung!!!

    Hang them both. That is the ONLY way we can stop all this nonsense that is going on today. How can you be that brazen to get on a public bus and start shooting anybody? Again, you don’t enforce hanging, then these guys will continue their garbage. Society should have no need for anybody who goes out shooting anybody at free will. He needs to be executed or beheaded. That simple. We need to stop making excuses for these rogues.

      ds, they cannot hang them both, because they have allowed one of them to plead not guilty to this shameful doing.

      And if his plead comes through, he will be walking free, within whatever the time. But my nephew lost his privilege to exist in the body as a healthy young man, at the age of 29, by the hands of 2 evil brothers. This is so unfair.

        ELIZABETH can you let the readers know that the murderers are also your first cousin. Their grand father is your grandfather’s brother. That does not give them a license to kill. They are Decima’s deceased sons. Of course let them pay but they are know strangers 😒 to you. Just plain sad

      I too would hang those who think they can kill at will, and get away with it.. Today if you just look at a man “too hard”, he can bully you or kill you just like that with his illegal pistol!!!
      Those guys need to be hung man!!
