Guyana: Deportee stabs lover to death after dumping her in trench

(KAIETEUR NEWS) – Armed with a kitchen knife, a mentally unstable deportee chased his girlfriend down a Corriverton, Corentyne street just after 09.00 hrs yesterday, before dumping her in a trench and stabbing her to death.

Itashia Idana Frank, 38, collapsed and died from stab wounds to the neck.

Police arrested the alleged killer, Durn Hunt, called ‘Rastaman,’ at the scene as he tried to drag the body out of the trench. They have also retrieved the murder weapon.

Relatives and neighbours claimed that Hunte was of unsound mind, while disclosing that his victim had moved from Georgetown to Queenstown, Corriverton about a month ago.

The brutal killing occurred shortly after Itashia Frank and her boyfriend, who has been in a relationship for just three weeks, had a heated argument at the suspect’s lot 108 Crane Street, Queenstown residence.

It was during a scuffle that Itashia ran out the yard, while Hunt picked up a knife and pursued her.

He eventually caught up with Itashia, threw her into a trench and stabbed her three times to the neck. The woman collapsed in the trench, which is located near her boyfriend’s house.

Eyewitness said that after killing his lover, ‘Rastaman’ dropped the knife in the ditch and sat on the parapet staring at her body. He then reportedly wiped the mud away from her face and kissed her face.
