An autopsy was expected to be performed today on the body of a man who attempted to take the life of his ex-wife.
According to police reports, the incident reportedly took place on Sunday night at the couple’s home along David Trace, Kelly Village, Caroni.
Relatives at the home contacted police after they heard screams.
Upon their arrival, officers found 50-year-old Drupatie Sankar bleeding from multiple injuries about her body.
She appeared to have been chopped.
The wounds, police said, were so severe that it appeared that one of her arms had been almost severed.
The police also reported that a short while after they found the body of 55-year-old Bishnu Sankar in some bushes close to his home.
A bottle containing a weedicide was found near to his body.
Police believe the suspect ingested the poisonous substance on realizing what he had done.
Drupatie Sankar, police said, was still warded at hospital in a critical condition.
