Arrested: Murder suspect Neldon Neblett

Reports are that Neblett allegedly stabbed the mother of three on Saturday evening after she reprimanded him for his drunkenness at about 23:30h.
The lifeless body of the 34-year-old woman also known as “Mama,” a fruit vendor was found in the living room of her Best Village, West Coast Demerara (WCD) home.
Based on reports received, Khatoon and the suspect—a 30-year-old fisherman—had been in a common-law relationship for the past five years, living together in Khatoon’s house along with her three children from a previous relationship.
On Saturday evening, the suspect returned home under the influence of alcohol and was scolded by Khatoon to “ease on the alcohol drinking.”

Dead: Anuradha Khatoon

This resulted in a heated argument during which the suspect became enraged, armed himself with a knife, and stabbed Khatoon in the throat. As such, the injured woman collapsed in the living room area.
The woman’s 12-year-old son who was awakened by his mother’s screams immediately raised an alarm. She was taken to the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH), where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
During an inspection of the body, one stab wound was observed to the throat. A blood-stained knife suspected to be the murder weapon was found at the scene.
When the Guyana Times visited Khatoon’s home on Sunday, her mother, Shashikala Lall, shared that the suspect was in the constant habit of abusing her daughter.
