23 year-old Shenella Marks was stabbed multiple times about her body by her husband at Charity Water Front, Essequibo Coast, on Monday around 16:00hrs.
According to reports, the house wife moved out of their matrimonial home at Westbury, Essequibo Coast, about a month ago because of constant domestic abuse by her 36 year-old husband, she along with their eight year-old son, went to live with her parents at Dredge Creek, Upper Pomeroon River. This apparently made the man irate and he attacked her.
The suspect then fled the scene, but, was apprehended and has confessed to the crime. He also has another assault charge at the Charity Magistrate’s Court committed on Marks.
The woman underwent emergency surgery and is presently in a serious condition at the Intensive Care Unit of the Charity Hospital. Investigations are ongoing.
