A woman is now dead after her reputed husband viciously chopped and battered her about the body at her Sheet Anchor home.
The dead woman has been identified as Mintie Karamchand, 40, of Lot 19 Sheet Anchor village, East Canje. Karamchand reportedly sustained slashed wrists and ankles and was clobbered with a piece of wood on her head until she inhaled her last breath.
At the home of the dead woman, neighbours were still gathered as they took in the events that quickly spiraled out of control. The woman’s daughter, Drucilla December, 21, who was present when her father, Goldburn December, aka ‘Goalie’, 47, attacked her mother, recounted to reporters what took place leading up to the time of her mother’s death.
She explained that she was in the upper flat of their two storied home tending to her infant when she overheard her parents arguing,
“I hear she ask he ‘Goalie wha do yuh?’ and then I run downstairs and I scream and see she come through the window and fall on the ground”.
The devastated 21-year-old relayed that she attempted to intervene but was ordered by her father to keep away.
“I move away cuz I had the baby in my hand and then he go forward fuh the bench wood and I run out and start hollering fuh help and nobody didn’t come”.
Sobbing uncontrollably, she stated that her mother didn’t deserve to die the way she did. “She didn’t do he nothing or tell he nothing. She was just moving out because we had an argument earlier and I told her I was gonna move out. When me father come he ask she what happen and she tell he she moving out. I don’t know if that get he angry”.
An eyewitness told this publication that she was at home a few houses away from the Decembers when she was told of the incident.
According to the woman, “I come out and see plenty people and I go over and see she (Karamchand) deh on the ground but she was breathing and then I see Goalie run back in the yard and seh “Oh you ain’t dead yet? You hard fuh dead.” He pick up the short wood and he give she three to four hit on she head and he get away.”
The woman was reportedly murdered as onlookers stood by, too scared to intervene. By the time the police were summoned to the scene, the attacker escaped on foot leaving the murder weapon beside his reputed wife.
Information gathered revealed that December and Karamchand lived together for 24 years and separated some eight years ago.
December, who is unemployed, migrated to neighbouring Suriname leaving the woman to provide and take care of their five children. He was reportedly deported back to Guyana just over a month ago and was staying at the Sheet Anchor residence with Karamchand.
However according to their daughter Drucilla they were not romantically involved since her mother had moved on but this sparked jealousy. Arguments were frequent within the home but the young woman stated that she never expected her father would do such a thing.
Up to late yesterday afternoon police were still combing the perimeter for the suspect.
