A pastor yesterday advised the
family of murdered mother of four
Shelene Mahangoo-Charles not to
be intimidated by death threats made
by the killer who is still on the run.
Pastor Farouk Mohammed tried to
encourage mourners, especially the
Mahangoo-Charles family, to trust
in God as he delivered the sermon at
her funeral service at her Stony Hill
Avenue, Tarodale, Ste Madeleine,
She was later cremated at the Shore
of Peace, Mosquito Creek, La
Although he heard the killer had
made threats to the family,
Mohammed said that did not deter
him from officiating at the service.
He advised the relatives to do the
"Do not fear any man, the only per-
son you should fear is God," he added.
Those who could not find God, he
advised them to search their hearts.
"Do not allow any man to instill
fear in you," he said.
Days after Mahangoo-Charles was
chopped by the suspect, who is a close
relative, he broke into the her home
last Thursday night and shot her
repeatedly. He then shot her 15-year-
old daughter, Kimberly, who remains
warded at the Intensive Care Unit of
the San Fernando General Hospital.
Investigations are continuing.
