Essequibo mother of five charged with trying to kill husband

Cynthia McIntyre

A mother of five is now behind bars on an attempted murder charge after she allegedly stabbed her common-law husband near his heart in a drunken scuffle, leaving him in a critical condition.

It is alleged that Cynthia McIntyre, 35, at Four Miles, Arakaka, on April 17, with intent to commit murder, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Ryan Roberts.

McIntyre, of Lot 18 Ruby, East Bank Essequibo, denied the charge when she appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in Georgetown.

Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore told the court that Roberts is presently in the Intensive Care Unit at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) in a critical condition after he sustained a stab wound to the left side of his chest in the region of his heart. The prosecutor noted that the wound is still bleeding.

According to the police’s case against McIntyre, on the day of the stabbing she and Roberts were drinking when they had a disagreement, resulting in a scuffle. It was during the scuffle that the defendant allegedly broke a beer bottle and stabbed Roberts. Sometime after, Roberts was rushed to the Arakaka Health Centre and later air dashed to the GPH.

Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan remanded McIntyre until May 9, when the matter will be called at the Matthews Ridge Magistrate’s Court.
