(STABROEK NEWS GUYANA) – A three-year-old boy is now dead after he was allegedly stabbed by his mother this afternoon at their East Coast Demerara home.
The child, identified by police as Ramdeo Ferreira, was stabbed twice—once to the back and once to the chest—and died around midday while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital, where he was rushed by police.
The suspect, who is 26, is currently in police custody.
Police said the suspect is cooperating with investigators.
The woman reportedly told investigators that she had a dream that she was going to die today. As a result, she said she did not want to leave the boy behind since he was the favourite of her two children.
