Gordon Leslie Durant was yesterday remanded to jail after making his first appearance before Magistrate Nayasha Williams-Hatmin at the Vigilance Magistrate’s Court.
Durant is accused of murdering his wife, Joan Durant.
The police stated that between June 26 and June 28 at Melanie Damishana, East Coast Demerara, Durant murdered the 50-year-old woman. He was not required to plead to the capital offence of murder.
It is alleged that the woman was killed by her husband on June 26, last. It is unclear under what circumstances the murder was committed, but it is believed that her death may have stemmed from a heated argument the couple had the same day.
The woman’s body was found two days later buried in the sand, in what appeared to be an unfinished bathroom in the three-bedroom single-flat house.
Police ranks were directed to the shallow grave late Thursday afternoon by Durant, who had been in custody since the 50-year-old woman was reported missing by her son on Tuesday night.
In court, the man wept when the Magistrate set his next court appearance for July 30.
