The 30-year-old La Bonne Intention, East Coast Demerara woman who allegedly disarmed her abusive reputed husband and stabbed him to death was today charged and remanded to jail for the man’s murder.
The accused, Aquiella Abrams, was not required to enter a plea to the murder charge as it was read to her by Magistrate Fabayo Azore.
The Court was told that on the 10th October at Golden Grove, East Coast Demerara, Abrams stabbed 40-year-old Michael Wilson to death during a physical altercation. She will make her next Court appearance in the month of November.
In a statement earlier this week, the Guyana Police Force stated that according to the woman, she was ending an abusive relationship with the man when he attacked her with a knife.
She was reportedly slashed across one of her arms, but managed to get the knife out of the man’s possession and used it to stab him repeatedly.
The injured man was taken to the hospital where he died while receiving treatment for multiple stab wounds.
