NORWICH – Ganesh 'Remy' Ramsaran – the man who was convicted of second-degree murder of his wife, Jennifer, back on Dec. 1, 2014 – saw his conviction reversed on Thursday after an appeal decision handed down by the Supreme Court, Appellate Division: Third Judicial Department.

Jennifer Ramsaran, the defendant's wife and the victim in the case, went missing on Dec. 11, 2012. She was last seen at her home in New Berlin that morning. The defendant reported her missing around 8 p.m. that evening after she failed to report home from a shopping trip in Syracuse.

An extensive search followed, and Jennifer's body was finally discovered down an embankment adjacent to Center Road in the Town of Pharsalia on Feb. 26, 2013. It was determined that the victim had been killed by unnatural causes some months prior, although an official cause of death was never determined.

Ramsaran was arrested for the murder of Jennifer on May 17, 2013. On May 24, 2013, he was indicted by a Chenango County grand jury on one count of second degree murder, a class A-1 felony, in connection with the alleged crime.
