‘Chucky,’ indicted for brutal murder of aunt, to face another trial after jury fails to reach verdict
Kevin Mohan, also known as ‘Chucky’, who was indicted at the Demerara High Court for the brutal murder of his aunt in 2016, will have to face another trial after the jury failed to reach a verdict following almost two hours of deliberations in the High Court Tuesday.
Mohan, 27, formerly of Fifth Street, Cummings Lodge, East Coast Demerara, was on trial before Justice Navindra Singh for the September 4, 2016, murder of his aunt – 48-year-old Anita Mohan – during a robbery at her Cummings Lodge home.
Justice Singh told Mohan that he will have to face another trial at the next practical sitting of the Demerara Assizes. He will remain on remand.
The state was represented by prosecutor Tiffani Lyken, while Mohan was represented by attorney-at-law Ravindra Mohabir.
According to reports, Anita Mohan was found dead by her son Imtiaz Khan; her body was lying in a pool of blood in her kitchen with her head bashed in and a stab wound to her chest.
A bloody rolling pin along with a broken beer bottle were found near the body. Kevin Mohan was arrested by police since he lived with this aunt and had access to the home.
He allegedly confessed to the murder and told police that he committed the crime with the help of an accomplice.
A post mortem examination performed on the woman’s remains revealed that she died from multiple injuries.
