Man to face retrial over murder of Kaneville machine operator

Rayon Carter

Rayon Carter now faces a retrial after a jury was unable to arrive at a verdict on the indictment levelled against him for the 2018 murder of former Kane-ville machine operator, Ishwar Ramanah.

Following hours of deliberations yesterday afternoon, the forewoman informed the court that the panel was deadlocked in a proportion of 10 to 2 with no possibility of arriving at a consensus.

In the circimstances, Justice Navindra Singh declared a mistrial and explained to a visibly distressed Carter that the jury was hung and he would therefore have to remain on remand for a new trial.
