Accused wife killer for retrial
-after hung jury
Ganesh Narine will have to face a new trial after a jury yesterday failed to reach a unanimous verdict on his guilt in the murder of his wife Krishandai Singh
After close to three hours, the 12 members of the jury returned to report to Justice James Bovell-Drakes that nine of them were in favour of a not guilty verdict and three were against it. They said that they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict on Narine’s guilt in the June 12, 2009 murder and as a result it was ordered that he be returned to the Georgetown Prisons, where he will have to wait for the next available opportunity to stand a second trial.
