One year later, man who stabbed wife’s lover to death arrested, charged
After being on the run from the police for more than a year, Gary Blackman called “Nick-Knock” was on Friday charged for the 2018 murder of Darren Edwards called “Overdose”.
Blackman, of Stevedore Housing Scheme, Georgetown appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and was not required to plea to the charge.
Particulars of the charge stated that on December 21, 2018 at Hadfield and Breda Street, Georgetown, Blackman killed Edwards.
Blackman was remanded to prison until February 20, 2020.
According to reports, Blackman and Edwards are known to each other. It was alleged that Edwards was involved in a relationship with Blackman’s reputed wife.
According to reports, on the day in question, Blackman went home and caught his wife in bed with Edwards.
It is alleged that the jilted man armed himself with a knife and stabbed Edwards several times about his body.
Edwards ran out of the house, but Blackman gave case and continued attacking him with the knife.
The injured man collapsed onto the pavement and was picked up in an unconscious state and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he succumbed.
Blackman escaped and went into hiding; however, he was earlier this week nabbed by police.
