Trio charged with murder of elderly women
Three Albouystown residents were remanded to prison on Wednesday for the murders of Constance Fraser, 89, and Phylis Caesar, 77, who were found dead on October 3, 2017, at their South Road and Albert Street home in Georgetown.
Christopher Khan also known as Imran Khan,25; Steven Andrews, 26, and Phillip Sufferin, 23, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, where they were jointly charged with two counts of murder.
It is alleged that between October 2 and October 3 at Lot 243 South Road and Albert Street home, the trio murdered the two women during the course of a robbery. They were not required to plead to the capital offence and were remanded to prison until October 26, 2017.
While making their out of the courtroom, the three accused were beaten by other prisoners at the court outpost. Khan, who is the suspected mastermind, was captured by police at Karawab, Pomeroon River days after the murder.
Fraser and Caesar were discovered bound and gagged around 9:30hrs by members of their South Road Full Gospel Assembly church.
Autopsies performed by government pathologist Dr Nehaul Singh revealed that they both died as a result of asphyxiation due to suffocation and manual strangulation, compounded by trauma to the head.
