After slicing open his wife’s stomach on Saturday last, Charles Woolford remains in a critical condition at the Georgetown Hospital. Yesterday he was unconscious and handcuffed to his hospital bed.
According to hospital sources, Woolford has refused to tell hospital officials the type of poison he ingested.
One nurse told Kaieteur News that, “He is just waking up and staring into the ceiling, refusing to tell the doctor what he drank”.
The nurse further told Kaieteur News that by refusing to tell doctors what he drank, Woolford is making it very difficult to treat him, adding that even if tests are conducted, they can be too late for the man.
On Saturday last, Woolford stabbed his wife, Latoya Woolford, several times about the body.
The man had accused his 29-year-old wife of having an ex-martial relationship with a neighbour who lives opposite the couple at 2041 Humming Bird Street, Festival City.
The stabbing was witnessed by the woman’s 11-year-old daughter, Marcia Conway. According to the child, on Saturday afternoon at around 16:30 hrs, “Mommy was about to go do her friend’s nails, since she was a hairdresser.”
The child had told this newspaper that Charles Woolford walked into the house with a knife behind his back and asked her mother where she was going.
At the time, his wife was fixing her hair in front of a mirror.
“He turned her around and just started stabbing mommy, and all de time he pulling de knife up and down inside mommy,” the 11-year-old recounted.
According to a relative who lives in the upper flat of the house, after receiving the injuries, Latoya Woolford staggered out of the apartment and managed to climb a flight of stairs.
“She called out to my mother, and then she said that ‘Tony’ had stabbed her,” the relative recalled.
She was rushed to the Davis Memorial Hospital, but was later transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital because of the severity of the injuries. The woman died at around 06:30 hrs the following morning.
The woman leaves to mourn her three children — Marcia Conway, 11, Macyann Woolford, 7, and Shemar Woolford, 4.
