“I want to speak out” –Mastermind in South Rd. double murder tells Court
The alleged mastermind, who is charged with the murders of the two elderly women, has told the court that he wants an opportunity to speak out about what really transpired on the day the women were killed.
Twenty-five-year-old Christopher Khan, also known as ‘Imran Khan’, is one of the three men jointly charged with the murders of Constance Fraser, 89, and Phyllis Caesar, 77, who were discovered dead in their South Road and Albert Street home on October 3, 2017.
During his second court appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, Khan told the court: “I don’t want to waste the court’s time and I want to speak out about what really happened.”
The Magistrate told Khan that he will be given a speedy trial and will be allowed to address the court. She adjourned the matter to November 20, 2017, for report.
Khan, along with 26 – year old Steven Andrews and 23 – year – old Phillip Sufferin, are jointly charged with the indictable offence.
It is alleged that between October 2 and October 3 at Lot 243 South Road and Albert Street, the trio murdered the two women during the course of a robbery. They were not required to plea to the capital offence.
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.
