Woman stabs lover to death after he ended relationship
Darren Harris, 46, a cook of E Field Cummings Park, Sophia, was on Thursday evening stabbed to death by his reputed wife after he reportedly ended their relationship.
Police investigations revealed that Harris and the suspect once shared a relationship which ended about a week ago due to domestic issues.
An eyewitness told detectives that she overheard an argument on the road and as such, she ventured out of her home to investigate. As she looked out, she saw the now dead man falling to the ground and the woman walking away from the scene.
As a result, the eyewitness raised an alarm and persons rushed to the scene. Shortly after, an EMT arrived at the scene and pronounced Harris dead.
The body bore three stab wounds – one to the left side chest and two to the left side upper back. The suspect was later arrested at her home where it was observed that she too was bleeding profusely from a wound between her right index and ring fingers.
She claimed that she and Harris were involved in a scuffle during which the deceased chopped her and in retaliation, she took the knife and dealt him several blows about his body. She claimed that after the incident, she disposed of the weapon.
She was, nevertheless, escorted to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where she was treated under guard. Harris’ body is presently at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting post-mortem.
Attempts to contact the dead man’s relatives proved futile.
