– suspect allegedly rammed father-in law’s boat with high-powered vessel
An irate Port Kaituma man allegedly murdered his father-in-law in a most unusual way after the 67-year-old victim rescued his daughter from a beating.
Police said that Dennis Williams, a farmer, died at around 06:30 hrs yesterday, after the suspect rammed his engine-powered vessel into Williams’ small paddle boat.
According to reports, the suspect and two of his friends were consuming alcohol early Saturday morning and he eventually invited them to spend the night at his home.
Shortly after, the suspect’s wife and daughter went outside to use a washroom.
This infuriated her husband, who allegedly accused her of wanting to see his friends.
After seeing his wife coming from the washroom, the suspect began to beat her.
On hearing the commotion, the woman’s father, who resided nearby, crossed a river with his boat and rescued his daughter.
Williams then remained with his daughter until daybreak.
According to information, Williams was returning home in his boat at around 06:30 hrs when his son-law hopped into his engine powered boat and in “a fit of rage” drove over Williams’ boat, causing the elderly man to fall overboard.
Williams’ body, which bore injuries to the head was later recovered, while his son-in-law was detained.
The remains are presently at the Port Kaituma Hospital Mortuary awaiting a post mortem examination.
Just last month, a Port Kaituma carpenter, was recently charged and remanded on an allegation that he murdered his wife.
Thirty-six-year-old Tyron James is alleged to have punched his wife Evadnee Baptiste to the head after he saw her dancing vulgarly with another man.
James had later made an appearance before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman who read the murder charge to him.
The charge against James stated that on July 15, at Port Kaituma, Waterfront, North West District, he murdered Evadnee Baptist, 37, of Oronoque, Port Kaituma.
He is currently on remand for the indictable offence.
It was reported that on the day in question, James found Baptiste dancing with another man and upon seeing this, he became annoyed and dealt the woman a cuff to her head, causing her to fall to the ground.
James then reported what had transpired and the woman’s body was taken to the Port Kaituma Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The cause of her death was given as a brain haemorrhage due to blunt trauma.
A man was also recently charged for murdering a Venezuelan who he saw beating his spouse for dancing with another man.
This killing occurred at Black Water, Cuyuni. Francisco Hosea De Matos, 27, a gold miner of Monkey Mountain and Lot 87 Grove Public Road, Demerara, is currently on remand for the offence.
According to information reaching this publication, Rafael Prieto, 27, and his partner, 32-year-old Laurens Susana Rodriguez Cabrera, a Venezuelan, went to a restaurant and bar at Black Water, Cuyuni, where he found her dancing with another man.
Annoyed at this, Rafael pushed the woman to the ground and sat on her chest, and then proceeded to use a knife to cut off her hair. Upon seeing this, Francisco went to the woman’s rescue.
The suspect then dealt Rafael several stabs about the body with a knife. The victim received injuries to his upper lip, upper left arm and his abdomen, causing his intestines to protrude.
