After two days on the run, the man who stabbed his reputed wife and dumped her from his car, causing her death, has surrendered to the police.
Kaieteur News was told that the man, Alan Sim, turned himself in with his Attorney Patrice Henry, at the Alberttown Police Station early yesterday morning.
He was questioned by detectives yesterday and is scheduled to undergo further grilling today.
Sim is being accused of killing Georgetown Public Hospital dispatcher Melissa Skeete, of 94 Prince William Street, Plaisance, East Coast Demerara.
The mother of four died on Monday at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) hours after she was allegedly stabbed by her jilted lover who then kicked her out of his car on Carmichael Street, Georgetown in broad daylight.
The incident occurred around 16:30 hrs in the vicinity of Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre.
Detectives, acting on information reportedly provided by the suspect, returned to the area where Skeete was pushed from the car, for clues that could strengthen their case.
Shortly after stabbing Skeete, the suspect had called one of her friends and when the individual asked why he injured the woman, he denied and ended the call.
It is not yet clear if Sim has admitted to police his reason for killing Skeete.
According to reports, the woman left work around 15:00 hrs on Monday. The hospital security guards recalled seeing the woman entering the suspect’s car.
There are reports that before Skeete left the hospital with the suspect, she left his car registration number, PRR 6841 and her cell phone number with one of her colleagues.
The woman reportedly told her co-worker that she does not trust the man and requested that he (co-worker) call her phone later in the day to ensure that everything was okay.
She also asked that if anything should happen to her, he should hand over the car registration number to the police.
Skeete was attacked shortly after leaving with the suspect. She was taken to the hospital by a man who saw her lying on the road in blood.
There are reports that the woman and the suspect who share one child separated some time back after she was frequently abused by the man.
Kaieteur News was told that after the separation, the suspect would show up at the woman’s home and physically abuse her.
Some time last week, the suspect went to the woman’s house and destroyed her windows, forcing her to move from that location.
Skeete’s co-workers recalled the woman complaining to them that her lover threatened to kill her.
