A 50-year-old old Berbice woman is battling for her life after being badly chopped about her body on Monday by her husband who eventually took his own life after the woman was rushed to the hospital.
Dead is 58-year-old Deonarine Juianand of No. 19 Village, Corentyne, Berbice. According to a police report, the man and his wife, Totmattie Juianand were involved in a heated argument when he armed himself with a cutlass and repeatedly chopped the woman about her body.
The 50-year-old woman was rushed to the New Amsterdam Hospital where she was admitted in a serious condition. The husband was not found at first but later on in the day, he was found hanging from the roof of the family’s Corentyne House. Investigators believe that the man thought his wife was dead and may have decided to take his own life without realising that she had survived his violent attack.
Investigations into the incident are still ongoing.
