A simple apology on behalf of a relative
led to the senseless killing of a Rio Claro

cold gravel road outside his Settlement Trace,
His killer, a 48-year-old female relative,
was kneeling over his body crying when the
She admitted she had ended Gibson s life
with a single stab to the neck using a kitchen
As police including Sgt Doodai, Cpl
Dwarika, Cpl Ramsahai and PC Flores,

intoxicated and neighbours reported seeing
the two earlier at a nearby bar. The woman
was arrested and taken to the Rio Claro
Reports said around 8.30 pm, Gibson, the
caretaker of a cocoa estate behind his house,
was at home when an argument broke out.
His neighbour, Majorie Jagroop, recalled
hearing the woman shouting, "I did not
cuss Chanadaye," a reference to a shopkeeper
in the village.
Jagroop said the woman and the shop-
keeper had an argument earlier and Gibson
went to the shop to apologise, but when he
returned home the woman began shouting
Jagroop said around 8.30 pm she heard
someone crying and inquired what had hap-

her to call the police, since she believed she

"I asked her, What you do, girl? and she

wanted her to go, he wanted her to get a
work. She didn t want him talking to any-

"He was a nice, quiet person. Last night
when everyone came out, everyone said he
was a nice person. When she quarrelling
you would never hear him shouting."
Police believe gang-related violence led to the
deaths of two men at Pipiol Road, Upper Santa
Cruz, on Thursday night.
The victims were identified as Sherwin "Dan"
Cole, 37, a contractor of Cantaro Village, Santa Cruz,
and Gregory "Jamdown" Charles, 37, also a contractor,
from Pipiol Road, Upper Santa Cruz.
Both men died on the spot after they were report-
edly shot several times by assailants.
Police recovered 68 assorted spent shells at the
scene of the crime.
According to a police report, around 11 pm a resident
of the area heard gunshots. When he went to the
back of his home to investigate he discovered Cole
and Charles lying in a pool of blood.
The resident called the police and officers from
the Homicide Forensic Team Region Two and Santa
Cruz police cordoned off the area.
District medical officer Dr Ranjeev Ramkhalawan
viewed the bodies and ordered them removed to the
Forensic Science Centre in St James for autopsies.
Their killings pushed the toll for the year thus far

Department alerts and register with US consulates

The US Embassy in T&T noted, "We provide
updates on security and other considerations,
such as natural disasters, that US citizens should
