A 34-year-old man is currently hospitalised under guard for stabbing to death 16-year-old Sanesha Lall of Richmond Housing Scheme, Essequibo Coast.

The murder occurred at around 09:00hrs this morning at the young lady’s home.

Reports are that Lall and the suspect shared a relationship which ended some time ago.

However, this morning, the man barged into the young girl’s home and entered her bedroom, whipped out a Rambo knife and stabbed her multiple times about her body.

He then made his good escape in a blue minibus which he drove.

The teen was rushed to the Suddie Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

At around 12:20hrs, the suspect was arrested at Better Hope Backdam, Essequibo Coast.

The suspect was observed vomiting what appeared to be a green substance, and upon questioning by ranks, the perpetrator admitted that he consumed a poisonous substance in a bid to end his life.

He was therefore taken to the Suddie Hospital where he is admitted under guard.

A search of his vehicle revealed an “indezone” bottle and a black Rambo knife.

Investigations are ongoing.
