At approximately 1100 hours today (Saturday March 31, 2018) Captain Orwain Sandy of the Guyana Defence Force allegedly shot and killed his reputed wife in Alexander Village. He has since surrendered to the Guyana Police Force. One eye witness who prefers to remain anonymous told one news outlet that the couple was arguing in the car when the woman exited and Sandy reportedly picked up the gun and shot her dead.
In a Media release by the Guyana Defence Force, Captain Orwain Sandy is immediately interdicted from duties and the Guyana Defence Force has launched an inquiry into the incident saying
“The Force is truly saddened by this occurrence and would want to reassure the general populace that this is an isolated incident and is not reflective of the Values and Standards of the Guyana Defence Force.”
The Chief of Staff has ordered the Inspector General of the Guyana Defence Force to conduct a Board of Inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The Guyana Defence Force has extended its sincerest condolences to the relatives of the late Reona Payne.
