The 60-year-old mother-in-law of the pundit murdered during an apparent robbery at his Arouca home on November 25, 2017, has been charged with his murder, along with a 20-year-old handyman who is said to have worked for the victim.
Kumarie Maraj and Salim Goberdhan, both from Five Rivers, Arouca, were charged with murder, following advice received from Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard, SC, on Wednesday 6 December.
The two accused will appear before an Arima Magistrate on Friday.
Sunil Ragbirsingh, 45, who lived at the same address as his mother-in-law, was at home with his family, including Maraj, when four assailants, one of whom was armed with a gun, entered and announced a robbery.
