The 25-year-old man who allegedly slit the throat of his 16-year-old lover on July 29, was on Tuesday morning remanded to prison when he appeared before Magistrate Alex Moore at the Sisters Magistrates’ Court.
Ryan Singh, of lot 48 West Ruimveldt and Number 2 Village, East Canje Berbice was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that on the day in question, he murdered Parbattie Lakhpal also known as Rosana Lakhpal.
The matter was transferred to the New Amsterdam Magistrates’ Court and he is expected to appear on September 29, 2017.
Inews had previously reported that on July 29, 2017, Rosana Lakhpal, a former Berbice Educational Institute (BEI) student was murdered reportedly at the hands of her boyfriend- identified as Singh.
Reports were that the duo reportedly met on Facebook and they subsequently started living together.
Inews was informed that the relationship commenced before the young girl turned 16.
Neighbours said they had made numerous complaints to Lakhpal’s mother that Singh was abusing her daughter when they were alone. However, the teen reportedly denied that the abuse was happening.
On the day that the 16-year-old met her demise, Singh and the teen were reportedly arguing over his lack of interest in finding a job.
The accused was reportedly angered by her “nagging” and this reportedly resulted in him slitting her throat, leaving her in a pool of blood.
An eyewitness had related that the girl’s face was partly covered with a pillow as she lay on a carpet on the floor with her neck slashed. He then reportedly flung the knife he used several feet away and fled the scene.
Singh was on the run until Tuesday last when he was captured.
Singh has also been implicated in an incident where he almost killed a previous girlfriend, after stabbing her over 50 times about her body.
