Man chops wife, sister-in-law
- claims they were in compromising position
Police in Berbice have detained a man who brutally hacked his wife and her sister after he allegedly found them in a compromising position on Tuesday night.
However, the two women who are now patients at the Georgetown Hospital have given police a different version of the events that led to their injuries.
A senior police officer in the Ancient County yesterday confirmed that the incident took place at Bath Settlement around 18:45 hours on Tuesday.
Kaieteur News understands that the man who was arrested shortly after the incident told investigators that he came home and was angered by the sight of his wife and her sister engaging in a sex act.
He admitted that he dealt both women several chops about their bodies.
But the women told police that they had attended a funeral earlier that day and were at home when the man came in with a bottle of rum and offered them a drink.
It was while imbibing that an argument broke out resulting in the man going berserk and inflicting the wounds on his wife and her visiting sister.
Police say they are examining both versions of the story with a view to instituting charges.
