Ramsaran Pleads Not Guilty to Grand Jury Second Degree Murder Charge

As Ganesh "Remy" Ramsaran exits the Chenango County Courthouse Tuesday morning, he winces at the sound of friends and family of his late wife shouting, "Justice for Jennifer", from across the street as he taken into custody.

Ramsaran, charged with Murder in the Second Degree charge, a class A-1 felony, plead not-guilty in front of Judge Frank Revoir Tuesday morning.

Judge Revior reset his bail to $500,000 or $1-million real property bond, and was remanded to Chenango County Jail.

Ramsaran publicly led the search for his wife, Jennifer Ramsaran, since her disappearance December 11th, 2012 from their home on 449 Sheff Road in South New Berlin.

"The day that Jen went missing, it took a big part of us with her," told Fox40 in an on-camera interview at an event honoring Jennifer on February 16th, 2013.

"I saw him on TV the first time, and just the reaction and the feelings I felt, I felt it was him the whole time," said New Berlin resident Rebecca Shoener.

Then, the search for her killer, since her body was found on the side of a rural road in the Town of Pharsalia on February 26th, 2013.

Ramsaran was arrested for the murder of Jennifer on May 17th and met the bail with $300,000 worth of real estate on May 22nd.

Supporters of the "Justice for Jennifer" group hope Ramsaran won't be able to repeat that.

"I'm happy, but at the same time I'm nervous that he's going to make bail again and skip off to Mexico," said Schoener.

Knowing that Ramsaran is now behind bars, brought relief to those in the New Berlin community who feared for their safety.

April Tuttle, a New Berlin resident who has four small children, said she was afraid for her kids to play outside.

"Every little thing that I saw just freaked me out.  So, I was kind of relieved to find out that it was him, because I don't have to be worried about everybody else around my and my neighbors," said Tuttle.

Inside the courthouse, it was a sea of blue in support of "Justice for Jennifer" group.  Many in attendance wore a blue shirt and sported blue ribbons reading, "Justice for Jennifer."  Even trees outside the courthouse had blue ribbons tied around them.

"I just wanted everybody to show their support," said Tuttle who made the blue ribbons.  "I kind of wanted (Remy) to see everybody wearing the blue ribbons."
