Days after a wanted bulletin was issued for him, Police on Tuesday arrested Eliuge Allicock for the stabbing death of his girlfriend’s ex-partner during a scuffle last weekend.

Police Headquarters said Allicock, a 26-year-old miner from Hubu, Parika, East Bank Essequibo was arrested at Issano Landing, Middle Mazaruni.

He admitted to committing the crime after being cautioned, Police said.

Allicock is accused of murdering 39-year-old Calvin Nelson on August 05 at Honey Camp Backdam, Middle Mazaruni River.

Dead: Calvin Nelson

Allicock is the boyfriend of a 22-year-old female cook of Tasserene Village, Middle Mazaruni River. The woman was previously in an intimate relationship with Nelson.

According to a Police report, the woman related that on August 4, she and Allicock went to Honey Camp Landing, where they consumed Guinness and became intoxicated.

At about 01:00hrs on August 05, they went to Clive Smith’s Shop and continued to drink Guinness.

While at the shop, Nelson approached her, and they had a conversation which caused the suspect to become annoyed.

This resulted in him grabbing and assaulting her; Nelson intervened and a scuffle ensued.

During the scuffle, Allicock stabbed Nelson with a knife twice.

Nelson escaped and went to a nearby shop where Neville Critchlow, a 65-year-old construction worker took him to Issano Health Post where he was pronounced dead.
