Sophia sisters remanded for neighbour’s murder
Two sisters were Thursday remanded to prison for the fatal stabbing of Vanessa Anderson, a 22-year-old resident of ‘B’ Field Sophia, Georgetown.
Jamacy Jason, 21, and Tiffine Greaves, 29, appeared at the Sparendaam Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Rushelle Liverpool.
The duo was not required to enter a plea to the capital offence which alleged that they murdered Anderson on Monday, August 08, at B Field Sophia.
The siblings were remanded to prison until September 28.
According to the case facts, Jason and Greaves are sisters and were the victim’s neighbours.
However, the siblings were not on speaking terms with Anderson due to a past misunderstanding.
According to reports on the day in question, at about 18:00 hrs, Anderson was at home with her sister and brother-in-law.
It is alleged that Jason and Greaves began taunting the victim by “throwing hints.”
An argument ensued between the three.
Anderson then exited her home heading to the nearby shop but was ambushed on the road by the two accused.
It is alleged that Greaves pulled out a knife and handed it to Jason, who then stabbed Anderson to her back.
Anderson was rushed to Georgetown Public Hospital and was pronounced dead.
The siblings were arrested and admitted to the offence under caution.
