Police Investigators in the Berbice area are investigating the murder of a 40-year-old woman who was allegedly beaten to death by her 62-year-old reputed husband.
The dead woman has been identified as Shabana Babita Ishack of 69 Rosignol, West Bank Berbice. The murder reportedly took place early this morning.
The reputed husband has since been arrested and according to the Police, he told investigators that he used an iron bar and pieces of wood to beat the woman because she did not cook his meals properly.
The man is reportedly known to be a drunk in the community and the two only started their relationship three months ago.
Neighbours reported to the Police that they heard loud screams coming from the shack around 2 o’ clock this morning, but they did not venture over until sunrise and it was then that they found the woman’s lifeless body.
Murder charges are to be laid against the reputed husband before the end of this week.
