Six days after Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Captain, Orwain Sandy, surrendered to officers at the Ruimveldt Police Station, having allegedly shot his reputed wife, Reona Payne, a Travel Agent, he is expected to make an appearance in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts today, for a charge of murder to be read to him.
A senior police official told this publication that an extension of detention was granted to keep Sandy in custody.
According to reports, Sandy, who was the Aide-de-Camp to the Chief-of-Staff and has since been interdicted from duty, surrendered to lawmen shortly after 10:45 hrs last Saturday after he allegedly shot Payne several times at First Street, Alexander Village.
It was reported that Sandy and Payne were seated in a car when the two got into an argument. Sandy allegedly shot the woman several times about her body, killing her.
He then drove himself to the station where he reportedly told the police what had transpired. He also handed in his weapon and was placed in custody.
Payne, who was a mother of three, and Sandy were not married, but were living together for about three years. The two had also recently launched a business, Prestige Taxi Service, at the recently concluded Wedding Exposition.
The Guyana Defence Force, in a release on the day of the shooting, said that Sandy was immediately interdicted from duty. The release further stated that the force was saddened by the incident, but noted that Sandy’s action was not reflective of the values and standards of the GDF.
The release also stated that an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the incident was launched.
