A man accused of murdering his two-year-old stepdaughter four years ago appeared before a magistrate yesterday charged with her murder.

Murder accused Adrian Noel, who is currently in prison on a charge of killing the child’s mother Patricia Fletcher-Thomas, was unrepresented when he appeared before Chaguanas Magistrate Joanne Connor.

He is accused of beating two-year-old Kimora Roopnarine to death in September 2013.

He was charged on Friday while in custody charged with allegedly slitting the throat of Fletcher-Thomas on May 16, 2016.

Noel will have to re-appear in court on November 24.

According to the child’s grandmother Erica Thomas, on September 16, 2013, the child was picked up from pre-school by a relative, who took her to the Chaguanas District Health Facility, and reported that she was having difficulty breathing.

The child was pronounced dead on arrival at the health facility.

On May 16, last year Fletcher-Thomas of Phyllis Lane, Enterprise, Chaguanas, was killed one day after her 26th birthday.
