A 43-year-old man has surrendered to police following the stabbing of a kindergarden principal in Port-of-Spain this morning. Dead is Jezelle Phillip.

Reports indicate that the incident occurred just as Ms. Phillip was preparing to welcome students on their first day of school, at around 7:20am. Police believe the matter may have stemmed from a domestic dispute.

The school is located along Independence Square, on the corner of George Street. Reports are that some students were already at the school when the incident occurred. The victim died at hospital.
