One week after the lifeless bodies of two elderly women were found in their Albert Street home, three men from the Albouystown Community were today charged and remanded to prison for the double murder.
Appearing in Court this afternoon were 25-year-old, Imran Khan, 26-year-old, Steven Andrews and 23-year-old, Phillip Suffrein.
The men had a blank look on their faces as the two murder charges were read to them and they were not required to enter a plea.
The two charges stated that between 2nd and 3rd October, the three worked together and murdered 89-year-old Constance Fraser and 77-year-old, Phillis Caesar, during the course of a robbery at the women’s home.
The three men were remanded to prison until October 26th, when the Court matter will continue.
The bound bodies of the the elderly women were found in their home last Tuesday by a member of their church and a police officer who had been summoned to the scene, after the women had not been heard from for the day.
A post mortem examination revealed that both women, who were Sunday school teachers, had been strangled to death.
