A West Demerara woman is in police custody and claiming self defense after she stabbed her lover to death during a heated late Saturday night argument.
The dead man has been identified as 42-year-old Frederick Peters. He was pronounced dead at the West Demerara hospital after being rushed there with stab wounds about his body. He was taken to the hospital by the police after his lover, 47-year-old Colette Parks, called the Police after she had already stabbed the man.
Neighbours reported that the two were involved in a loud argument with each side claiming that the other side was cheating.
The woman had complained that her lover had another lover who was calling and threatening her. He claimed that he was not the one cheating.
The argument escalated and sources close to the woman are claiming that she had not choice but to defend herself after the man started to abuse her during the argument.
Police investigators are probing the incident.
Peters was only recently released from prison after serving a 13-year jail sentence.
