The mason who confessed to murdering his aunt was on Thursday arraigned for murder.
Azad Ally also called “Kevin Mohan”, 22, of Lot 315 Fifth Street, Cummings Lodge, Georgetown, was charged for the murder of his aunt when he appeared at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court.
He appeared before Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul and was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on September 4, 2016 at Cummings Lodge he murdered Anita Mohan, 48, during the course or furtherance of a robbery of $10,000.
The court heard that the defendant was previously charged with assaulting his girlfriend. While in court the defendant kept mumbling, “I will not live with my aunt and kill her.”
The matter was transferred to Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court where the accused will make his next court appearance on October 28.
The battered body of the woman was discovered on Sunday afternoon by her son who had just returned home from work. The woman was found in a pool of blood in her kitchen .
The accused told detectives that his now dead aunt sold drugs at home apart from selling greens and vegetables during the day. He revealed that on the day in question a friend had purchased “drugs” from the woman and left.
He later returned and requested another package but on credit since he did not have money. He further stated that his aunt refused to give credit which led to an argument. It was during the argument that the suspect and his accomplice dealt the woman several blows to her head.
An autopsy performed revealed that Mohan sustained a chop to her head and one in the vicinity of her temple along with a stab wound to her chin and one in her mouth.
The perpetrators also cut off portion of her tongue and she was strangled. The police are still hunting the second suspect in the brutal murder.
