Triangular love affair: ‘Cross Eye’ charged with murder
Days after he allegedly murdered a 40-year-old Taxi Driver of Lot 915 South Amelia’s Mackenzie, Linden, 34-year-old Corwyn Arthur known as ‘Cross Eye’ appeared at the Linden Magistrate’s Court this morning and was remanded to prison.
Arthur of Cinderella City Amelia’s Ward, Linden, was not required to plea to the charge and is slated to re-appear in Court on June 21, 2018.
Arthur was arrested at about 23:45hrs on May 17 in a house at Bennett Dam, Rosignol Village, West Bank Berbice, where he fled after allegedly stabbed Claude DeJonge called ‘Sonno’ to death at his ex-lover’s house in Linden on May 10.
News Room had reported that DeJonge shared a common law relationship with 35-year-old Tanya Samuels for about 11 years and would be back and forth between her Lot 1074 Cinderella City Mackenzie, Linden home and his home.
However, during this time, it is alleged that the woman also shared a relationship with the suspect which she ended in December 2017. Following the separation, the News Room was told that suspect, ‘Cross eye’ would still visit the woman’s home “as a family friend.”
On the day in question, it is reported that DeJonge was asleep with his reputed wife when the suspect gained entry through an open window and confronted him in the bed.
The two ended up in a fight during which the suspect dealt DeJonge three stab wounds with a knife while allegedly shouting: “I gone kill you, I want you soul, me gone murder you”.
DeJonge was found motionless next to the front door in a pool of blood, with stab wounds to his neck, left shoulder and his abdomen.
