A TWENTY-eight-year-old fisherman, who allegedly stabbed his ex-wife after she refused to let him kiss their three-year-old son, was on Tuesday further remanded to prison for attempted murder.
Ramsawan Singh, of Sea View Street, Cornelia Ida, West Coast Demerara, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and had his matter transferred to the Leonora Magistrate Court for July 27.
Last week, Singh was charged for unlawfully and maliciously wounding 27-year-old Geeta “Pinky” Deochand with the intent to commit murder on June 28, 2018 at Cornelia Ida.
According to reports, Deochand, who lives at Cornelia Ida, and the 27-year-old suspect, who is the father of her child, have been separated for a while.
However, on Thursday morning, while the victim and her son were standing on the Cornelia Ida Public Road, the suspect allegedly approached them and asked to kiss the child, but was refused permission to do so.
It was at this point that he became enraged and stabbed her several times with a knife and ran away. He was later apprehended.
