T&T Mother Chopped Ten Times Before Cops Killed Her Husband

Trinidad Express:–  The woman whose husband was killed by police officers during a domestic dispute in Chaguanas on Friday was chopped almost a dozen times by her spouse.

Chinel Jeffrey sustained chop wounds to her back, hand, neck and head when she was attacked by her husband, Christopher Singuineau.

A police officer on Saturday confirmed that the mother of four remained a patient at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope with ten or 11 chop wounds.

Her husband was shot and killed by police who went to Enterprise Street, Chaguanas at 3:15 pm and heard loud screams for help coming from inside the house.

They saw Jeffrey on the floor of the living room with Singuineau standing over her, chopping her.

The officers called out to him to stop but he did not comply.

Jeffrey was close to the door but was unable to open it.

The officers broke down the door and entered.

They fired shots at Singuineau.

He and Jeffrey were taken to the Chaguanas District Health Facility where he died.

Jeffrey was transferred to the Mt Hope hospital.

ASP Smith commended the police officers involved.

“It was the only way they could have dealt with that at the time,” he said.

Smith said since 2017, there has been a greater presence of police officers and soldiers in Enterprise, Chaguanas and this has drastically reduced serious and violent crimes in the area.

    25 Countries With The Highest Murder Rates In The World
    With a population of about 175,000 people, Saint Lucia is another little Caribbean country that is, apart from amazing natural beauties and marvelous beaches, known for a very high homicide rate. And, sadly enough, the number has been still growing. While in 2007, there were “only” 27 murders reported in the country, just four years later, it was almost twice as many.
