Singh entered the Sisters Magistrate’s Court yesterday morning with a smirk on his face. As he left the court, he smiled for media operatives as they took his picture. While laughing, he told Lakhpal’s mother, Indrawattie Narain, “Indie, I still love you me mother-in-law.”

Narain, 42, then shouted, “I will make sure I get justice and you not to hurt anyone else.”

Lakhpal, also known as ‘Rosanna,’ was discovered with her throat slit in the living room of her apartment around 1 pm on July 29. Singh, with whom she had shared a live-in relationship for more than a year, allegedly slit the teen’s throat during a fight, after which he had fled the scene. Some eleven days after the murder, Singh was held in Nickerie, Suriname and was then subsequently handed over to authorities in Guyana.
