(JAMAICA GLEANER) A Manchester woman is now in police custody after stabbing to death her 38-year-old common-law husband, Oneil Coleman.
The woman reportedly stabbed Coleman in the neck this morning after he used a machete to beat her at their home in the southern community of Woodlands.
The police say both Coleman and his common-law wife have made complaints about each other for varying reasons.

He also said Coleman was in an abusive relationship.
