– Husband charged
A Guyanese woman was murdered by her husband last Wednesday night at her Newark home in New Jersey.
Dead is Yvette Pieters, 59, formerly of Victoria, East Coast Demerara, who was stabbed by her husband Fredrick Pieters in her New Jersey home.
According to reports emanating from New Jersey, Yvette Pieters wanted her husband out of their Newark home late Wednesday night, but Frederick Pieters wouldn’t leave, authorities said.
An argument grew heated and someone in the house, possibly one of the children dialed 911.
Another call to police was made, and when police officers arrived minutes later, Yvette Pieters had been stabbed, a New Jersey County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Pieters was taken to University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Subsequently, police charged her husband, Frederick Pieters, 59, with murder and weapons charges.
Reports further revealed that Yvette Pieters was granted a restraining order against her husband in 2001 and 2002. However, there was no such order against him at the time of the killing.
The couple had been married for a decade, but had lived in their three-story house on the corner of Clinton Place and Homestead Park for about a year, one neighbour told authorities.
“The couple was friendly, and Frederick Pieters would chat when he worked on his car”, said Arelis Hernandez, a next-door neighbour. There was never any yelling coming from the house, which was often filled with people, she said.
But authorities believe Wednesday night’s argument started when Yvette Pieters tried to remove her husband from their home.
There were several children inside, and one of them may have placed the first call to police at 11:52 a.m. Another call came three minutes later, when the argument turned violent. Police arrived, but it was too late.
