With tears rolling down her face, 25-year-old, Melissa Playter appeared before Magistrate, Allisha George to answer the charge of murder, committed on her reputed husband, Victor Roberts.
The man was stabbed to death on Sunday at his Plaisance residence during a row with the accused.
The accused stood quietly as the charge was read to her, with details of the crime.
Just after the charge was presented, the Magistrate ordered that the woman be remanded to jail until her next Court date, which will be January 17th, 2019.
According to a Police report, the couple got into an argument on Sunday afternoon and that argument soon turned into a confrontation. It was during the confrontation, that it is alleged, the woman armed herself with a knife and stabbed the man to the chest.
He collapsed and was rushed to the hospital, where Doctors pronounced him dead. Some persons in the area have since claimed that the two were previously involved in fights and many times, the woman was abused. They believe she might have been acting in self defence.
