A 31-year-old man in Maryland will spend the remainder of his days behind bars for brutally killing and then dismembering his father, a local doctor, nearly two years ago.

Carroll County Circuit Court Judge Maria L. Oesterreicher on Tuesday ordered Ravi Pansuriya to serve life without parole in a state correctional facility in the 2022 slaying of 59-year-old Dr. Maganbhai Pansuriya.

Oesterreicher handed down the sentence several months after a jury in November 2023 found Pansuriya guilty on one count of first-degree murder for killing his dad.

“Murders rarely occur in Carroll County, but this one stands out as exceptionally horrific and brutal, and because it was committed by a son against his father,” Carroll County State’s Attorney Haven Shoemaker said in a statement. “We hope that this verdict brings some solace to the family and friends of Dr. Pansuriya during what must be a very traumatic time for them.”

The gruesome investigation began on Oct. 2, 2022, when a young man traveling down Medford Road in New Windsor, Maryland, came across a dismembered body lying partially in the roadway, according to a news release from the Carroll County State Attorney’s Office. The body was partially wrapped in linens and a rug.
