The trial of Kevin Mohan, also known as “Chucky”, who is accused of the 2016 stabbing death of his aunt, has ended on a hung jury.

The matter was presided over by Justice Navindra Singh at the High Court in Georgetown.

The accused has since been remanded to prison, pending a new trial after the jury failed to reach a verdict on charges of murder leveled against him.

It is alleged that on September 4, 2016, at Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown, he murdered Anita Mohan during a robbery.

Mohan who pleaded not guilty was represented by Attorney-at-law Ravindra Mohabir while the state’s case was led Prosecutor Tiffani Lyken.

Based on reports, Anita’s battered body was discovered in a pool of blood in the kitchen of her Lot 315 South East Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown. An autopsy performed revealed that Anita had sustained a chop wound to her head and one in the vicinity of her temple, along with a stab wound to her chin and one in her mouth.

A portion of her tongue was severed, and she was strangled.
