Husband who buried wife in shallow grave remanded; autopsy inconclusive
Fifty-five-year old Avemanen Permaul called ‘Terry’, of Lot 33 Block 1 Kilcoy/Chesney, Corentyne, Berbice, made his first court appearance on Tuesday, charged with the murder of his wife, Waynumattie Permaul, 53.
The man appeared at the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Renita Singh; he did not have legal representation and was not required to plea to the charge. He was remanded to prison until May 31, 2022, and the case was transferred to the Albion Magistrate’s Court.
Meanwhile, a post mortem examination conducted on the woman’s body was inconclusive; she was laid to rest on Sunday last.
The News Room had reported that the son of the woman, West Indies cricketer Veersammy Permaul filed a missing person report with the police on April 28, 2022. He told police that he last saw his mother, a housewife, on April 21.
Following that report, police immediately launched a probe and visited the home of the woman at Kilcoy/Chesney on April 29.
At the home, they scoured the bottom flat which was identified as the dwelling house of the mother of four. There, bloodstains were spotted in various sections of the house, including the woman’s bedroom.
The husband was arrested and hours later, he reportedly confessed to murdering his wife and discarding her corpse in a shallow grave he dug in an empty lot just 100 yards away from their house.
