A squabble between two relatives took a turn for the worse when one of the men allegedly stabbed his brother-in-law several times, killing him.
Fifty-six-year-old Terrence Adams of North Haslington, East Coast Demerara was found along the roadway in his village around 20:15hrs last night with multiple stab wounds about his body.
He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he was pronounced ‘dead on arrival’.
INews understands that moments before his murder, Adams had been involved in a row with his male relative, on the street in Haslington.
Eye-witnesses allege that the two men began to scuffle and fight with each other on the street and it was then that Adams’ brother-in-law dealt a number of stabs to the man’s body. He then crumpled to the ground as the suspect left the crime scene.
However, quick action by the police ranks led to the arrest of the suspect and he is presently in police custody. According to Commander of ‘C’ Division, Marlon Chapman, persons who witnessed the crime identified the suspect to police and this led to the man’s arrest in a timely manner.
The suspect has visible marks of violence and injuries about his body as well, said the Commander. He is presently in police custody and is said to be co-operating with ranks with regard to the murder investigation.
