June 27, 2017 (Koror, Palau) A motion has been filed to dismiss charges of Murder in the Second Degree and Manslaughter against Inis Remoket. Mr. Remoket was earlier charged by the Republic for the alleged death of his wife Jaycee Iyar Ochob,
Inis Remoket was charged on January 23, 2017, after an extensive manhunt failed to recover a body of his estranged wife who has been missing since September 2016.
The motion asserts there is “absolutely” no evidence to support the allegation that Ochob is dead and furthermore, no evidence that Remoket is responsible for her presumed death.
“her presumed death is theoretical, unsubstantiated, uncorroborated and made up out of whole cloth,” stated the motion.
Motion calls for all charges against Mr. Inis Remoket for allegedly killing his wife to be dismissed.
Ms. Jaycee Iyar Ochob was reported missing on October 22, 2016. She was last seen on the night of September 17, 2016 with her estranged husband at Sunset Bar where both were seen drinking together. According to police affidavit, witnesses reported them arguing later that night and that was the last night Ochob was seen by anyone. She had also announced to friends earlier that she was leaving to Guam.
On October 22, 2016, she was reported missing by her friend and her family members. A nationwide search for her bore no results. Witnesses came forward with accounts that imply Remoket may have had something to do with the disappearance of his wife.
On January 23, 2017, Mr. Remoket was charged with murder and manslaughter and unable to post bond, was remanded to jail. He waived his rights to oppose Republic’s motion to reschedule the trial and his bail was reduced. He was released on a $300 cash bail on March 21, 2017. [/restrict]
