Reports are that the Police were called to the man’s house by his mother who told detectives that her son was stabbed to the chest by his wife. The couple was reportedly engaged in a heated argument when the woman went into the kitchen, collected a knife and dealt the man one blow to the chest.

Upon their arrival at the apartment, the Police saw the man lying on the floor with a single stab wound to his chest. They immediately took him to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The 32-year-old woman of Brooklyn, New York, has since been charged for the murder. The woman was examined and appeared to be suffering from very serious mental health issues. She is due back in court on October 27.

Only late September, a Guyanese woman was fatally stabbed by her estranged husband whom she had cut ties some two months ago.

Hannah Donald, 47, was rushed to the hospital with multiple stab wounds to her chest, arm and neck, following an argument with her husband at her E 17 Street near Dorchester Rd, Brooklyn home.

According to reports, the woman’s 58-year-old husband was taken into custody. It was also reported that the now dead woman had cut all ties with her husband following severe abuse.
