Guyanese woman charged with husband’s murder

A 21 year old woman has been charged in Guyana with the manslaughter of her husband after reportedly suffering from years of domestic abuse.

Lisa Hayley appeared before the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court Thursday where she was released on $250,000 bail.

The alleged incident apparently occurred on July 29, 2017 resulting in the death of Dailson Hayley.

According to the Guyana Chronicle, the couple were having an argument when the husband armed himself with a knife and threatened to kill Hayley.

Hayley managed to disarm her husband and used the knife to stab him in the chest. The injured man was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation where he later died.

Police reports say the couple been together for the past three years and have two children together.

During that time, the wife had been abused frequently and was forced into prostitution by her husband. The man would usually take away whatever cash she made, the Guyana Chronicle reports.

The accused woman’s lawyer, Stanley Moore said his client was suffering from years of abuse from her husband and her action were in self-defense.

“It was a case of domestic violence, an abuse suffering in silence,” Moore said.
