Albouystown man arrested for murder of wife
A 45-year-old man who on Tuesday morning fatally chopped his reputed wife was arrested. Police in a short statement said the suspect, Nicholas Shawn Williams, was arrested at 18:35h at a location in James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown.
“He is presently in custody and is assisting with the investigation,” the Police said.
Williams reportedly chopped his reputed wife 28-year-old Clarabel Johnson at Cooper Street, Albouystown, a short distance from her home.
He chopped the woman the back of her right knee, severing a major artery, which led to intense bleeding. She was picked up by public-spirited citizens and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where she died while receiving treatment.
Williams fled the scene following the incident; he owns a bicycle shop in the community.
The mother of three separated from Williams for several years and has been living with her parents after he became abusive. However, relatives on Tuesday told the News Room that the 45-year-old man still visited and continued to threaten the woman.
Johnson’s mother, Patricia Johnson told the News Room that her daughter told Williams she wants nothing to do with him and went as far as obtaining a restraining order against him, however, nothing worked to keep him at bay.
The couple has three children together; they are now ages seven, nine and 11 years old.
