Murder charge dismissed against woman accused of murdering husband
After spending the last 20 months on remand for the 2009 murder of her husband, Ramzan Alli, 50-year-year-old Milaimi Alli, had the murder charge withdrawn based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack.
Alli was before Magistrate Fabayo Azore at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court where the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) was being conducted. She was not required to plea to the charge, which alleged that between July 11 and 12, 2009, while being in the company of another, she murdered her husband at Coldingen Railway Embankment Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).
She was represented by attorney-at-law Bernard DaSilva. When the case was called on Monday, the court was informed that the DPP has withdrawn the murder charge against her; as such, the magistrate discharged the matter and Alli was freed.
The defence attorney said the case was discharged due to lack of evidence.
Meanwhile, Zaheed Mitchell, 39, who is said to be the former lover of Alli, was charged in 2019, in connection with the murder of Ramzan Alli. He is currently undergoing a PI for the matter.
Local police arrested the woman at CJIA on April 4, 2019, following an arrest warrant issued on April 1; she was residing in New York, USA.
The investigation into the murder of the fuel dealer was reopened in March 2019, after investigators received new information that she allegedly paid her lover $7M to kill her husband.
According to reports, the fuel dealer was last seen alive by relatives when he left his Good Hope home on July 11, 2009, in his car.
He was discovered dead in the trunk of a rental car with a plastic bag duct-taped over his head on the Coldingen Railway Embankment Road on July 12, 2009.
