The man accused of viciously stabbing his reputed wife to death at their Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara home last year April, was on Monday committed to stand trial in the High Court for the murder.
Julian Devon Limerick, 32, of 79 New Road, Vreed-en-Hoop, was charged with murdering Pamela Mangru and had been remanded to prison when he appeared before Magistrate Fazil Azeez at the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s court last year. It is alleged that on April 1 at New Road, Vreed-en-Hoop, he murdered Mangru.
The preliminary inquiry was heard by Magistrate Nyasha Williams-Hatmin and on Monday she committed Limerick to stand trial in the High Court for the offence saying that sufficient evidence had been led against him.
Reports are that on the night in question, the couple was overheard arguing and some time after, Limerick was seen leaving the home after he had padlocked both the door and the gate. Mangru’s landlord, suspecting something was amiss, contacted relatives and the police and when the door was kicked down by the lawmen, the woman’s bloodied body was discovered.
Limerick fled but later turned himself in to the lawmen at the Springlands Police Station.
A post-mortem examination on Mangru revealed that she was stabbed three times in the throat with her killer turning the knife and leaving a hole, from which she bled to death. The woman had some ten stab wounds about the body.
