Woman remanded to prison for murder of husband
A woman was on Thursday remanded to prison for the murder of her reputed husband, 46-year-old Darren Harris, of ‘E’ Field Cummings Park, Sophia, Georgetown.
Eva Pearson, 27, appeared before Magistrate Alisha George at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Court and was not required to plead to the charge which alleged that on April 1, 2021, at School Street, Cummings Park ‘E’ Field Sophia, East Coast Demerara, she murdered Harris.
Pearson was remanded to prison until May 18, 2021.
According to reports Harris and Pearson once shared a relationship but it ended about a week prior to the incident due to domestic issues.
According to a female witness, she overheard an argument on the road and later saw Harris lying on the roadway with the woman not too far away from his body.
The witness raised an alarm and the EMT ambulance service subsequently arrived and pronounced Harris dead.
Police said the body bore three stab wounds – one to the left side chest and two to the left side upper back.
Pearson was later arrested at her home where it was observed that she was bleeding profusely from a wound between her right index and her “ring finger.”
She claimed that she and Harris were involved in a scuffle, during which he dealt her a chop to her fingers.
She further claimed that she relieved him of a knife and inflicted injuries on him before discarding the knife.
