The two Moruca sisters, Cynthia Cozier and Beverly France, were chopped by their brother on Wednesday because they tried to prevent him from hitting a child, relatives have reported.
Cynthia Cozier has since succumbed to her injuries. Her brother, 28-year-old Randy Cozier, is still on the run from Police.
Alanzo Cornelius, the father-in-law of Cynthia, told the News Room that Randy became angry after the sisters intervened and tried to stop them from hitting a child in the village. He picked up a cutlass and fired it at them repeatedly.
Cynthia, a 25-year-old mother of three was chopped to the head and other parts of the body; she had her 8-month old baby in her hand at the time. The baby was chopped to the head.
Her sister, 40-year-old Beverly, was also brutally chopped.
Police Headquarters in a statement Thursday said Cynthia succumbed to her injuries at the Suddie Hospital at around 06:30hrs Thursday, while Beverly and the baby, Kevin Suddeen, remain in a stable condition at the hospital.
The Police reported that Randy ran away after the incident, which occurred at approximately 13:00hrs where the siblings live together at Waramuri Village in Moruca, Region One.
