Dead are 45-year-old Selima Norton aka Shelly of New Providence Housing Scheme and 37-year-old Kurt Reynolds of Meadowbrook Gardens.
The two were involved in a relationship and together they managed a business in the same Kamarang community. According to the Police report on the incident, the couple got involved in a heated argument after the woman accused her lover of mismanaging the business.
The argument quickly escalated into an encounter and it was during that encounter that it is alleged that Selima Norton armed herself with a two-bladed knife and inflicted two stabs to Reynolds’ abdomen and left foot.
The man managed to grab the knife away from the woman and stabbed her multiple times about her body.
They both collapsed some distance apart and bled to death from their injuries.
The bodies have since been brought to the city for a post mortem examination as the investigations continue.
The blood stained double blade knife that was used in the murder was recovered at the scene.
