The police say they are investigating the murder of Chetram Bharrat, 40 years, of Haslington New Scheme, ECD, which occurred at about 0400h. today.
Initial investigations, police say, indicate that two men, both of whom were armed with cutlasses, entered the home of Bharrat and his reputed wife Lomattie Ramdat, 36 years, through a window.
The men demanded cash and jewellery during which the two victims were chopped about their bodies, police say.
Bharrat was later pronounced DOA at the GPHC, while Ramdat is receiving medical treatment.
