Man who strangled La Grange woman to death remanded

L-R: Ryan Johnson and Nirmala Sukhai

Thirty-year-old Ryan Johnson, who strangled his partner to death, was on Thursday remanded to prison.

Johnson of Canal Number Two Polder, West Bank Demerara (WBD), was arraigned before Magistrate Faith McGusty in the Wales Magistrate’s Court and was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

The charge against Johnson is that on September 29, 2022, at 35 Factory Dam, La Grange, WBD, he murdered 33-year-old Nirmala Sukhai, called ‘Shorty.’ He was remanded to prison until October 27, 2022.

MTV News Update reported that Sukhai’s body was discovered by her 54-year-old mother, Savitri.

After finding her daughter’s lifeless body in her house, lying face down on her bed, Savitri made a report to the La Grange Police Station, and the Police launched a probe.

The 30-year-old man was arrested and reportedly told investigators that he strangled the woman after he caught her in a compromising position with another man.
