Avemanen Permaul, called “Terry,” who confessed to beating and choking his wife to death after he heard her speaking with another man on the phone, was on Tuesday slapped with a murder charge.

Permaul of Lot 33 Block 1 Kilcoy/Chesney, Corentyne, Berbice was hauled before Magistrate Renita Singh at the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court and was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

On April 22 at Lot 33 Block 1 Kilcoy Chesney, Corentyne, the charge stated that he murdered 53-year-old Waynumattie Permaul, called “Datalin.”

According to the Guyana Police Force (GPF), famous cricketer Veersammy Permaul on April 28, 2022, visited the Police Station in Berbice and reported that his mom had been missing since April 22, 2022.
