NORWICH – Chenango County Court Judge Frank B. Revoir, Jr. decided in a proceeding Monday morning that all the pre-trial hearings for alleged murderer Ganesh R. Ramsaran will be closed to both the public and the media.
“The court is making sure we can draw an impartial jury,” said Revoir. “I have reached the conclusion that Mr. Ramsaran’s right to a fair trial might be compromised if the pre-trial hearings were subject to public viewing.”
Ramsaran is accused of killing his wife, Jennifer Ramsaran, in December of 2012. Her body wasn’t found until February of 2013 along Center Road in Pharsalia. Onondaga County's Chief Medical Examiner performed the autopsy and he was not able to determine the cause of death. The medical examiner did conclude – based on information gathered – that Jennifer was the victim of a homicide.
