[www.inewsguyana.com] – Dental Nurse Kelly Sandiford of Wimar Housing Scheme, Linden was today remanded to prison on a manslaughter charge.
The 35 – year – old woman was not required to plead to the indictable offence, which alleged that between November 16 and 17 at Wismar Housing Scheme, Linden she unlawfully killed 20 – year – old Todah Richards.
She was represented by Attorney – at – law, Konyo Sandiford Thompson, who requested bail, stating that her client does not pose a flight risk and is willing to report to the Police station until the completion of the matter.
Counsel said that Sandiford has been working as a dental technician at the One Mile Health Center for three years. Meanwhile, Police Prosecutor, Michael Grant cited the nature, gravity and prevalence of the offence as the objection grounds.
The Court heard that the accused is the Godmother of Richards and that they lived together; however on several occasions both parties were involved in arguments.
It is alleged that Sandiford tied Richard to a bed for some 20 hours and then subsequently found her dead. Police were summoned to the scene and found the young woman with a belt tied to her neck and lacerations on her body.
The matter was transferred to the Linden Magistrate’s Court for December 09.
