Woman dies month after setting fire that killed husband
A 36-year-old woman, who on September 10 set her West Ruimveldt, Georgetown house ablaze and caused the death of her reputed husband, has died from injuries she sustained in the same fire.
Jewel Coates suffered burns to her face, back and arms; she succumbed at the Georgetown Public Hospital at 12:50hrs on Tuesday.
Coates was a patient at the Burn Unit of the hospital since the ordeal.
News Room understands that during her hospitalization, Coates had suffered two heart attacks and was completely bedridden.
Her body is presently at the Georgetown Public Hospital Mortuary awaiting a Post Mortem Examination, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
On September 10, Coates allegedly set her home on fire, which she shared with her reputed husband, 56-year-old Christopher Bramble while they were both locked inside.
Neighbors, who rushed to the location, successfully pulled Coates from the burning house but she told them that her husband was not at home.
Bramble’s remains were later found in the rubble.
