Police are investigating a fire in West Ruimveldt, Georgetown during the wee hours of Monday morning which has left a 56-year-old man dead in his home while his alleged reputed wife was injured.
The deceased has been identified as Christopher Bramble of West Ruimveldt.
According to Police “A” Division Commander, Marlon Chapman, the injured woman- who has not yet been identified to INews- is presently nursing burn wounds at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
While Chapman disclosed that he has not yet received a full report of the incident, INews was told that the fire occurred as a result of Bramble’s reputed wife allegedly locking him and herself in the home they shared, before setting it alight.
Residents in the area were recorded by media operatives describing the woman as “abusive” to Bramble.
The house that the duo shared was reportedly completely destroyed.
Investigations are ongoing. (Ramona Luthi)
