Prosecution closes case against accused in murders of church elders

With the prosecution closing its case yesterday, one of the three accused in the murders of Constance Fraser, 89, and Phyllis Caesar, 77, who were found dead in their South Road and Albert Street, Georgetown home last year, is expected to respond today.

Those charged are Imran Khan, called Christopher Khan, of Independence Boulevard; Stephen Jason Andrews, of Albouystown; and Phillip Suffrien, also of Albouystown.

The charge against the trio states between October 2nd and October 3rd, 2017, at Lot 243 South Road and Albert Street, they murdered Fraser and Caesar.

When the preliminary inquiry into the charge continued yesterday before Magistrate Judy Latchman, Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves closed his case against the defendants.

This then prompted the magistrate to ask Khan and Andrews if they felt that the prosecution had made out a good or bad case against them or if they didn’t know. While Khan said he didn’t know, Andrews told the court that there was a bad case made out against him and he asked for some time to put his reasons in writing.

Andrews’ request was later granted and the matter was adjourned until today.

Fraser and Caesar were discovered around 9.30 am on October 3rd, 2017 by members of their church, the South Road Full Gospel Assembly, after several efforts to contact them proved futile.
