A Corentyne woman was on Monday stabbed to death by her ex-husband from whom she had separated two months ago.
Dead is 24-year-old Cindy Ramchandar of Number 47 Village, Corentyne, Berbice.
Reports are that the suspect used his car to hit the woman off of her motorcycle before fatally attacking her with a knife.
According to reports, at about 07:00h, the young woman left home on her electric bike to drop off her three-year-old niece at her parents’ home, which is one street away.
While in front of the child’s mother’s home, her ex-husband reportedly drove up and struck her off of the bike.
He reportedly exited the car, attacked the woman with a knife, and stabbed her several times before fleeing the scene.
“I don’t know who call the boy and tell him that this gyal going by them to drop the child over there…but the boy get some details because he is not living at Rose Hall so he could reach so fast. He come from till in New Amsterdam and wait in front of the health centre. That is where he catch the gyal, she go with a red scooter and he push down the scooter and he stab she,” Ramchandar’s aunt, Anita Thirbhowan, told reporters.
According to her, the couple were married two years ago but separated two months ago.
During their marriage, Ramchandar suffered constant abuse at the hands of her husband. Thirbhowan said the last time a knife was used in the attack and it left her with several marks on her body.
