Less than a week after returning from the United States, the taxi driver who was implicated in the brutal murder of a Richard Ishmael school teacher was Wednesday arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.Matthew Munroe, of Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD), appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to the capital offence in shackles.With a grave look on his face, the father of six stood before Chief MagistrateDead teacher, Kescia BrancheMcLennan as the indictable charge was read to him.The charge stated that on November 7, 2017 in Georgetown, Munroe murdered Kescia Branche.Attorney-at-Law George Thomas, who is representing the 47-year-old man, told the court that his client, who has been in custody since November 30, has denied committing the crime, holding out that he was not in the jurisdiction.In an attempt to form an alibi, Thomas claimed that his client’s mobile phone was confiscated by the Police and records can prove his claims.However, Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield requested one month to complete the case file. This submission was granted by the Chief Magistrate.The case will continue on January 9.The Police are contending that the car from which Branche was allegedly dumped reportedly belonged to Munroe. Upon receiving that bit of information, the Police immediately named him as a person of interest.After spending some time in the United States, the man returned and presented himself to the Criminal investigation Department in the company of his lawyer.The Police stated that during interrogation, Munroe could not have provided information on his whereabouts on the night the woman was brutally attacked and more so, failed to give Police information on his missing car bumper.Twenty-two-year-old Branche, of Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown, was discovered lying at Princes Street and Louisa Row in Georgetown on the morningTaxi driver Matthew Munroeof November 5.She succumbed at the Georgetown Public Hospital two days after her discovery as a result of brain haemorrhaging and blunt trauma to the head.According to reports, Branche had left home for a night of partying.She left her three-year-old son in the care of a friend, who revealed that Branche told her that she intended to go to Palm Court to meet a male friend.The teacher later returned home, but subsequently left again. She told her friend that she would be home by 02:00h, but never returned.She was last seen leaving a nightclub on Lamaha Street in the company of two Police ranks.The father of the woman’s son was also arrested after the teacher’s mobile phone was found in his possession.He, along with four cops, were questioned about her death, but were later released on station bail.
Juventus beat Real Madrid 3-1 on Wednesday night, but were eliminated 4-3 on aggregate in the quarter-final after English referee Michael Oliver awarded the Spaniards a hotly contested 97th-minute penalty which Cristiano Ronaldo converted.Pirlo — a former Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan midfielder — called time on his illustrious career last November after winning the 2006 World Cup, two Champions League titles and six Serie A trophies.And he presented details of his farewell game ‘La Notte del Maestro’ (The Night of the Master) which will take place next month at the San Siro and will include some 2006 World Cup winners such as Buffon, Francesco Totti and Alessandro Del Piero.“A hot-head Buffon would have exaggerated talk about crimes against sporting humanity but it must be understood,” said Pirlo.“It was his last game in the Champions League and he hoped to win it. A penalty so doubtful after having played a match like this at the Bernabeu makes the nerves jump.“The penalty? You can give and not give, personally I would have avoided it ten seconds from the end.”Pirlo — capped 116 times for Italy during a 13-year career until 2015 — played his final two years with New York City FC.His farewell game will take place at San Siro where he spent the bulk of his career with Inter Milan (1998-20011) and then AC Milan (2001-2011).He played for Juventus for four years until 2015.“I chose May 21 because 21 is my number and I made my debut in May,” explained Pirlo, adding that all gate receipts will be donated to charity.Pirlo said he had never been tempted away from his native northern Italy despite offers from Barcelona.“There were negotiations over the years, but there was nothing better than Milan and I stayed. Three big clubs, and the one of my city, I’m satisfied.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000English referee Michael Oliver (C) shows a read card to Juventus’ Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon during a Champions League match on April 11, 2018 © AFP/File / CURTO DE LA TORREMILAN, Italy, Apr 12 – Former Italy star Andrea Pirlo on Thursday defended Gianluigi Buffon for his Champions League outburst as he named the veteran goalkeeper among his lineup for his testimonial on May 21.“If I’d been on the pitch, it would have burned to go out like that,” said Pirlo, “when you play a game like that and then lose the chance to play for it ten seconds from the end, it makes you crazy.”
Liverpool legend Didi Hamann has revealed he is a secret Arsenal fan – and claims it’s ‘criminal’ the Gunners have been knocked out of the Champions League by Monaco.Arsene Wenger’s men defeated the French side 2-0 on Tuesday night but, following a disastrous first-leg defeat at the Emirates, have exited the competition.And 2005 Champions League winner Hamann believes the north London club are just two players short of a squad to launch an assault on Europe’s top prize.“I’m a secret Arsenal fan,” he told talkSPORT. “Whenever they are playing on a Sunday or a Tuesday night, I’ll be watching them. I find it very hard not to watch them. I just love the way they play, they are excellent to watch.“When you look at the squad Arsenal have assembled now, they are only one or two players away from being contenders for the Champions League.“Going out to a team like Monaco, even though they deserved to go through, is criminal.”

Live Stats PDF Box Score Next Game: HTML Box Score Armstrong’s golden goal occurred in the second overtime (102:30) as the senior midfielder broke away from the Cyclones defense and fired a shot from eight yards away for her fifth goal of the season and the 13th in her career. Armstrong now ranks ninth all-time in program history in career goals. The Cyclones outshot the Bulldogs, 23-8, in the game, including a 15-2 advantage in the first half. However, Drake tallied six shots in the second half and the overtime sessions. Sophomore Alyssa Brand (Skokie, Ill.) led the Bulldogs with three shots, including two on goal while Armstrong finished with two shots, both on goal. Story Links Drake returns to Missouri Valley Conference action Saturday afternoon as the Bulldogs welcome Missouri State. First kick is set for 2 p.m. at the Cownie Soccer Complex. Prior to the crucial conference match, the program will host a senior day ceremony for Armstrong, Gabby Charles (Wausau, Wis.), Dennis, Alex Freeman (Duluth, Minn.) and Nicholson. AMES, Iowa – Senior Kayla Armstrong (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) scored a golden goal for the Drake University women’s soccer team to defeat Iowa State, 1-0, Tuesday night at the Cyclone Sports Complex. Drake (10-4-2) claimed its first win over Iowa State (8-6-1) since the 2006 season and just the third in the all-time in-state series. The Bulldogs had 22 players in the midweek match as they finished with their 10th shutout this season. Drake improved to 2-0-1 in matches against Power 5 opponents. Missouri State 10/22/2016 – 2 PM Full Schedule Roster Drake’s two goalies, Dennis and junior Haley Morris (Clive, Iowa) each played in the non-conference contest. Morris started in goal in the first half and tallied six saves. Dennis took over after halftime and recorded two saves. Preview “We had a lot of players play well tonight, but our center backs Ali (Smith) (Overland Park, Kan.) and Sarah Grace (Nicholson) (Overland Park, Kan.) were excellent all night and worked for our shutout,” Horner said. “We knew we weren’t going to get a lot of clear chances tonight to score, but we kept our composure in the overtimes when the game got intense and continued to play to our strengths. We had older players make big plays tonight. Brooke (Dennis) (Wauconda, Ill.) had a huge save outside of her box, and Kayla with the goal.” “Iowa State put us under tremendous pressure to start the game,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “We had a few saves off the line and team saves, and while we were a bit on our heels in the first half we started to put our stamp on the game in the second half.” “Our team is in an odd situation having had success in the non-conference going 10-1-1, and earning only shutouts against Power 5 schools, yet we play so well in MVC games but haven’t come away with the result,” Horner said of her team as they vie for their first league win on Saturday against the Bears. “Of all the teams I have been a part of this group is different. There’s something special about these players and how they compete for each other, the bond they have off the field, and their strength as a unit. We are looking forward to Saturday and putting together a solid performance, and for Alex to get back on the sidelines with us.”Print Friendly Version
