A man who slaughters animals for a living, during the wee hours of this morning killed his reputed wife at their Wales, West Bank Demerara home.
The man who has been identified as Nigel Glasgow is currently at the West Demerara Regional Hospital under police guard.
Relatives said he ingested a poisonous substance after murdering the woman and also has injuries on his body.
The dead woman has been identified only as “Dianne”.
Police investigators were at the scene this early this morning to carry out investigations.
Neighbors said they were awakened by loud screams and shouting. They rushed to the house to find that Glasgow had strangled the woman to death.
Three dogs were also found dead in the yard and one resident reported that the man also attempted to burn the house of one of the woman’s “good friends.”
Relatives and residents in the area are shocked over the incident, recalling that Dianne would visit from time to time even as they described Nigel as “a quiet person.”
