Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The husband of Jennifer Ramsaran, a Chenango County woman found dead months after she disappeared, has been charged with murder in her death.
The Chenango County District Attorney’s Office says Ganesh Remy Ramsaran has been charged with second degree murder.
Jennifer Ramsaran was reported missing on December 11, 2012. Her body was found on the side of a road in February.
The DA's office says Jennifer Ramsaran was murdered the same day she was reported missing.
Ganesh Ramsaran was arraigned on Friday after his arrest at 11 a.m.
He is being held at the Chenango County Correctional Facility in lieu of $150,000 cash bail or $300,000 bond.
Ramsaran is scheduled to appear in court on May 23.
At the time of her disappearance, Ganesh Remy Ramsaran told police his wife of 18 years left their home in New Berlin to go holiday shopping in Syracuse.
Over the next few months, her cell phone was found in the town of Plymouth, her minivan was abandoned in Norwich, and the search for her body led detectives to the town of Pharsalia.
After his wife’s body was found, Ganesh Remy Ramsaran said in an interview with NewsChannel 9
that he forgives investigators for the countless hours they spent hours searching his home, looking for clues.
"That was extremely, extremely scary and I told many, many of our family members, you know the husband is always the number one suspect," Ramsaran recalled. "There is nothing in the house...and four full days and they didn't even need a warrant. I had already offered, do whatever you want, you know. It is what it is man."
