Woman sought over fatal stabbing of partner at Dredge Creek

The police are looking for a North West District woman who is believed to have fatally stabbed her common-law husband in the Upper Pomeroon.

The alleged victim of domestic violence who is said to have recently fled her common-law home in the North West District along with her eight month old toddler, is being sought by the police for questioning in relation to the murder of her reputed husband Alfro Adams, the police said in a press release yesterday.

According to the police, the killing  occurred on Monday  at the woman’s aunt’s premises at Dredge Creek, Upper Pomeroon River, where the woman and her baby were seeking refuge.

Investigations revealed that the 30-year-old suspect and the deceased who is said to be in his early forties had shared a six-year relationship, at Haimarakabra, Moruca, North West District. However, due to constant abuse by the now dead man, especially when intoxicated, the suspect, a craftswoman, moved to her aunt’s home at Dredge Creek and sought shelter. Soon, after the alleged abuser followed and was allowed to join her.

The police said  that on Monday at about midday, the man accused the suspect of being unfaithful and slapped her and in an apparent fit of rage, she allegedly stabbed him in the right side of the chest with a pair of scissors and fled the scene.

Police said that the man, who was a labourer by profession, bled profusely and was rushed to the Charity Hospital where he was treated and admitted but succumbed at 5 pm. The body is presently at the Hospital mortuary awaiting a post-mortem examination.

Investigations are ongoing.
