Chetram Nourang, 33, called “Rice Truck” the Adelphi Village, East Canje, man who was committed to stand trial in the High Court in October 2009 had to be recommitted after an error was discover at his first committal.
Nourang, who is before the court for allegedly slashing his reputed wife’s throat because she spurned him, was committed by Magistrate Geeta Chandan- Edmond at the Reliance Magistrate’s court. She concluded that a prima facie case had been made out against the accused for murder.
The magistrate, on a previous occasion, had not ruled on the admissibility of the caution statement. Thus the matter had to be reopened for the magistrate to so rule.
Nourang is accused of murdering Jasodra Budhoo, 45, called ‘Susheila’ a weeder at the Rose Hall Estate at her Adelphi village East Canje Berbice home.
Prosecutor Inspector Satrohan Dayaram told the court that the accused and the deceased had shared a common law relationship and had lived together in her house for about two years. She eventually put him out after he became very abusive.
It is alleged that on the night of May 26, 2007 he returned to the premises and after entering the house demanded sex and offered to give her $ 1,000.The woman refused and a scuffle ensued after which he slashed her throat with a knife.
She managed to make it to a neighbour’s house from where she was taken to the New Amsterdam hospital where she remained a patient before succumbing on June 4, 2007.
Nourang who was previously represented by now deceased Attorney John Persaud and then by Charrandas Persaud was not represented this time.
Kaieteur News understands that while Nourang was awaiting the completion of his Preliminary inquiry he was found with narcotics within the prison and was subsequently convicted and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for the possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.
