Man accused of murdering Amarah Lallitte fails to show in court

Due to a request by the St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital for more time to have evaluations conducted, the man accused of killing 4-year old Amarah Lallitte was absent from the courts on Wednesday 1st May.

Thirty-nine year old Isan Constant was expected to reappear before Master Margaret Sookraj-Goswami, who on April 15, ordered him sent to St Ann’s for assessment.

Sookraj-Goswami made the order after Constant’s attorney Mario Merritt made an application.

He was charged on April 12 after homicide detectives received instructions from Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard, SC.

A post-mortem on Lallitte’s body, on April 11, revealed she was beaten and beheaded.

Contant is set to reappear on May 21st.

On April 8th, Lallitte’s mother of Fifth Street, Five Rivers, went to the Arouca Police Station to make a report of abuse. She told officers she had been attacked.

When a team of officers went with her to the home, they found the house locked and in darkness.

Police said PC Reid called out the suspect’s name several times and a few minutes later, a man came outside, bareback and wearing black three-quarter pants. The woman was then allowed to go into the house, but seconds afterwards, police heard screams, and she ran out.

WPC Mohan went inside and saw Amarah’s mutilated body. She had been beheaded and her head put in a barrel.
