The sister of Saint Lucia’s latest homicide victim has said that the deceased wanted to change his life around.
Charles Justin, known as ‘Stanley’, died after being stabbed on Jeremie Street Tuesday at around 7:55 pm, according to the police.
Justin had a murder charge against him dropped in November, 2016.
His sister, Carolina Justin, told reporters that there was no evidence against him.
“He wanted to change his life but the girl he is friendly to just keep on putting him behind – instead of he going forward he just keep on pushing everything back,” Carolina asserted.
She said she was told that the deceased and his girlfriend went to buy something to eat when a male individual slammed a door in the girlfriend’s face.
“So he turned back to walk away and the fellow stabbed him – that is what his girlfriend said,” the sister stated.
“But there’s many sides to a story, so I am not too sure,” she explained.
Carolina said she was very close to her deceased brother.
“Stanley was nice. Stanley was loving, but when he make up his mind – he is not nothing easy,” she explained, adding that the deceased had ‘good ways’.
“Nothing was too much for him to do for anybody,” the sister explained.
She said the 31-year old deceased was father to a ten-year old daughter.
Justin had been charged along with Neil Wilson also known as “Jerry” in connection with the death of Dean Monlouis of La Guerre, Babonneau.
The body of Monlouis was discovered in a shallow grave on Thursday, March 24, 2016 in Plateau Babonneau.
