The 54-year-old gold miner, Sherlock Henry, who is accused of stabbing his reputed wife to death appeared in Court this morning to face the murder charge.
Appearing before Magistrate Melissa Mittelholzer at the Mahaica Magistrates’ Court, Henry was not required to enter a plea to the charge that on the 21st August at Nabaclis he attacked and stabbed his wife to death at their home.
The two reportedly had gotten into an argument when the man accused his wife of having an affair. The woman wanted the relationship to end and made that clear to the husband.
After allegedly stabbing his wife to death, the man turned the bloodied knife on himself and stabbed himself to the neck repeatedly.
He was taken to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
At Court today, he was remanded to jail until October when the case will continue.
