Reports indicate that the woman and her reputed husband had been drinking together earlier in the day.

According to an eyewitness, his friend Desmond Gordon (suspect) told him that he was going to kill his wife and then take his own life. “So I try to stop him and put he to sit down on the step to buy time. The neighbour call the police and they say is man and wife story.”

According to the eyewitness, the couple had serious domestic problems and on several occasions in the past, Gordon had been very abusive and even threatened to kill the woman.

“He pick up a piece of wood and start beat she. Then I see he come out the gate with blood on he clothes ad he tell me that he finish she off,” the eyewitness claimed.

  1. This happens more often with your own kind,its nice to see how RACIST many of you are,but the world will have sympathy on you not GOD, what you should be hating is the fact that many of you are to blame for these killings and mixed marriages,first is the women are fed up with y’all RUM Drinking and slave thinking ways,you all are failures to the happiest of these women,examine your lifestyle,shameful drunks,what is happening to these women is very sad but if many of you learn to live as Guyanese and as 1nation life could go so much better, shameless crad

  2. Seems like these murders take a common trend,beauty and the beast,but the beast wins,this happens when they cross to the other side of the pond of lanka.
