Cunupia man appears in court for woman’s murder

A Cunupia man appeared in court today, charged with the murder of a woman, whose partially burnt body was discovered on September 4th.

Twenty nine year old Mazud Nazir Rasheed of Munroe Road was remanded into custody when he appeared before a Chaguanas Magistrate.

The victim has since been identified as 21 year old Reshma Mahadeo of Edinburgh 500, and was last seen by family members on Independence Day, when she left home to visit a friend.

Her body was discovered four days later by farmers along Warren Road in Cunupia.

Post mortem results indicated that the woman died from blunt force craniocerebral trauma.

Rasheed was arrested in connection with the murder, two days after the woman’s body was found.

The matter has been adjourned to October 10th later this year.
