Police are investigating the stabbing of two women and the suspected suicide of their alleged attacker – the fiancé of one of the women – at Woodstock Road, Spooners Hill, St. Michael.
Public Relations Officer Inspector David Welch said Vincent McClean Marshall, 60, reportedly stabbed his 50-year-old fiancée, Judy Brathwaite, both of Woodstock Road, and her friend Maureen Callender Harris before drinking a poisonous substance.
The incident occurred around 7 o’clock on Wednesday night.
Welch said Marshall allegedly stabbed Brathwaite in her stomach and also turned on Harris who he stabbed in the abdomen.
They were both taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where Harris underwent emergency surgery.
Police say that at some point, Marshall drank the poisonous liquid and was rushed to the hospital but subsequently died.
