FAMILY and friends yesterday rallied around a woman accused of murdering her 51-year-old husband.

Her relatives sat in the public gallery of the Port-of-Spain Fourth A Court as Angela Clarke appeared, charged with killing her common-law husband, Dean Bandoo, last Friday night at Las Cuevas.

Clarke, a mother of six, of La Fillette, appeared before Senior Magistrate Lucina Cardenas-Ragoonanan.

Neighbours found Bandoo’s lifeless body on the ground at the couple’s Rincon Road, Las Cuevas, home.

As Cardenas-Ragoonan read the charge, Clarke, 33, remained motionless in the dock in a pink blouse and a long green flowing skirt.

She was not called upon to plead as the charge was laid indictably.

Cpl Abbott laid the charges.

Her attorney, Patrick Godson-Phillips, requested that the prosecution disclose all documents, statements, interviews, photographs and medical records concerning Clarke’s case.

The magistrate told Abbott to take note of this.

Cardenas-Ragoonanan adjourned the matter to today and transferred the case to Chief Magistrate Sherman Mc Nicolls in the Eighth Court.

Hoping to catch a glimpse of Clarke, family members gathered outside the Port-of Spain courthouse to bid their daughter goodbye.
