[www.inewsguyana.com] – Twenty – three – year Colin Allenye of Lot 07 Cemetery Road, Timehri, East Bank Demerara, appeared before Magistrate Zameena Ali at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday afternoon (August 25), charged with the murder of 77 – year – old Carmen Ganesh, who was beaten to death in her Montrose, East Coast Demerara home on August 01.

Alleyne was unrepresented and was not required to plead to the indictable offence of murder. The court heard that he is a Welder by profession and was previously charged with breaking and entering.

The Prosecution also requested four more weeks for the police to complete investigations; as such he was remanded to prison until September 22. The police were reportedly monitoring the movements of the suspect who was captured on Saturday, August 22 wearing the very clothing that he wore on the day he murdered the woman.

The murder was caught on surveillance cameras mounted in and around the house and the tapes were released to the media. The woman’s body was discovered on August 01 with a cloth tied around her neck and a gaping wound to the back of the head.

Reports indicate that Alleyne confessed that he was hired by one of the woman’s sons for $700,000 to kill her and search the house for property documents. Ganesh was taking care of the property at the time of her death.

iNews understands that the mother of six lived alone but had several security cameras monitoring the activities of the premises, which she has been taking care of over the years for friends of the family.

iNews was told that the woman was last seen on July 31 after she completed her daily chores, which included cleaning the yard; however she was not spotted the next morning, prompting neighbours to inform her relatives.

The surveillance footage shows the suspect kicking, stomping and choking the elderly woman after hitting her on the head with a lug spanner.

  1. The government,opposition, this idiot and most Guyanese are useless as that door without bottom in this photograph. How could some people defend both this government and the previous crooks that previously govern. This new government saw it fit to bail out the useless sugar industry yet they fail to see these buildings that are supposed to house animals like Alleyne need desperate attention? Uncle Bango Guyana is dysfunctional society.

  2. @OneEyeonGT!!
    He is LIEING THAT SON TOLD HIM TO KILL….SON. DONT EVEN KNOW THAT GUY OR THE FAMILY! Thats a way to STAUL HIM FROM GOING TO JAIL!

  3. IT DOESN’T LOOK SO TO YOU…. BUT I UNDERSTAND….IT’S BECAUSE YOU WANT HIM TO BE RELEASED ON THE GROUNDS OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY FOR YOUR OWN SPECIAL REASON.

  4. Who would pay to have their own mother killed? What type/sort of human being does such things? Is the ownership of property so important? Is this the first time that this sort of thing has been done? Do we have a Guyanese problem, or are the roots deeper?

  5. Because he is smiling now Emile. He will now get FREE boarding and lodging without lifting a finger. And come next year or the other he would be given a pardon if convicted

  6. The APNU/AFC Government needs to be fully supported to reinstitute the death penalty. The good old USA still has 29 States with the Death Penalty as of July 2015, so they need not be deterred by foreign intermediaries on this score. This individual should be put away and then hanged publicly. This would assist in deterring the crime scourge..

  7. No REMORSE FOR YOU BOY!!!HOW CRUEL ,OLWAZ REM YOU HAVE A GRANNY Also ,A MOTHER,SISTER,NEICE AND YOU WONT LIKE ANY DOING SUCH BRUTAL,HATEFUL CRIME TOWARDS THEM,ONE THING FOR SURE OUR GOD HE DOESNT SLEEP NOR SLUMBER AND HE KNOWS. EVERYTHING N EVERYWHERE YOU GO…..YOU ARE DISPECTIBLE N BRUTISH!

  8. He should not see the outside of a prison for the rest of his life, along with the person that hired him.
