A North East La Penitence woman has been left battling for her life after being attacked by her common law husband, who later took his own life.
The dead man has been identified as Glen Forde aka “Black Boy”. The injured wife has been identified as Colleen Daly.
Police investigators were called to the Georgetown community last evening after the woman was rushed to the hospital and the husband’s body laid motionless in the house with a slashed throat.
Persons at the Calabash Street location reportedly heard the woman’s screams emanating from the house just after 6pm on Saturday.
She was stabbed multiple times about her body during a row with the husband. After the screaming woman collapsed with her injuries, the angry husband used the same knife to slash his own throat, resulting in his death on the spot.
Confused residents gathered and ensured the woman was rushed to the hospital.
It is unclear what triggered the argument that led to the attack. An investigation has been launched.
