GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Monday May 12, 2014, CMC – A city magistrate Monday freed a former beauty queen charged with murdering her wealthy husband seven years ago.
Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry said there was insufficient evidence to link Carol Ann Lynch to the murder of her 44-year-old Farouk Razac on May 7, 2007.
Lynch was first charged in May 2007 with killing her husband at their upscale Bel Air Park residence, but the case against her collapsed in 2008 due to an absence of sufficient evidence.
In 2010, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Hack recommended that the charge be re-instated and during the preliminary inquiry into the matter Lynch’s attorney told the court that the handyman, who also had access to the house, was never charged.
Defence attorney, Latchmie Rahamat said based on the material presented, there was no circumstantial evidence to prove that Lynch committed the act.
