The woman’s 41-year-old daughter, Natalie Loncke, a school teacher attached at the Salmen Fraser Nursery School, was repeatedly stabbed to the head by her paramour last night.
Kaieteur News understands that the man also slit the woman’s throat. The incident happened shortly before 19:00hrs yesterday.
Loncke died while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
One of the woman’s neighbours told Kaieteur News that she heard the couple arguing some time around 16:00hrs.
According to the woman, Natalie and the suspect continued arguing. The woman then demanded that he leave the house.
However the suspect refused to the leave and a fight ensued. This newspaper understands that the woman’s daughter, Renatha Craig, 19, rushed to her mother’s aid.
The neighbour further told this publication that after Craig jumped between the couple; the suspect dealt her blow to the face with a piece of wood.

According to the neighbour she heard a loud crashing sound; then the woman was heard screaming.
Minutes, later the suspect emerged from the house, checked to see who was looking and went back into the house.
