The lifeless body of the 58-year-old woman of Lot 29 Enmore North, East Coast Demerara was discovered on the morning of May 26 by her reputed husband of eight years, Nazir Khan called Cheela. Khan was subsequently held for questioning.

A post-mortem examination revealed that she died as a result of blunt trauma to the head.

James had told Stabroek News that based on the PME results a decision on whether her husband would be charged would have been taken.

Contacted yesterday, James said that Khan has since been released from custody and that investigations are ongoing.

Persaud’s daughter had told this newspaper that she received a call from a cousin that her mother had died. “I went to the house and I see my mother on the ground. She had black and blue marks on her face and a wound to the back of her head,” she said.

“I don’t know if she fall and knock she head or if someone hit she in she head. Cheela tell we that when they de ready fuh go in bed mommy say that she going and sleep in the other room and he fall asleep and next morning when he get up he see she in the room on the ground,” the woman said.
