A Scotsburg woman who went to the assistance of her aunt who was being attacked was killed yesterday after she was beaten to death by her father. Greaves was pronounced dead on arrival at the Skeldon Hospital.
According to reports, 33-year-old Onika Greaves of Lot 34 Scotsburg Housing Scheme, Corriverton died on the spot after her father, Charles Albert, repeatedly bashed her head with a piece of wood.
The incident occurred around 13:30 hours at the dead woman’s great aunt’s home in Princetown, Corriverton.
This publication was told that Greaves had been taking care of her ailing aunt who is also her father’s sister for several years now. According to reports Greaves saw her father attacking her great aunt and decided to intervene.
Reports are that when Greaves tried to ward off her father the man attacked her with a piece of wood. An eyewitness to the incident said that after Albert struck his daughter she fell unconscious. The man then reportedly tied his daughter’s hand to a post then he repeatedly kept bashing her head with a piece of wood.
This publication was told that residents stood by pleading with Albert to stop but to no avail. Persons in the area said they were afraid to intervene hence the call for the police.
A relative of the dead woman said that her father has been suffering with some mental condition for the past 20 years and has been admitted to a mental institution on more than one occasion.
“He does be in and out of the hospital and sometimes he does deh good, good, but when he drink and smoke up he does behave bad.”
One resident added that this is the first time to her knowledge that the man acted out so violently.
Albert has since been taken into police custody to assist with investigations.
