Man sends for police after admitting to killing woman
Donna George’s killer slit her throat, covered her body with a sheet and then sat in a hammock downstairs, waiting for the police to arrive. He surrendered the murder weapon and her identification card to homicide investigators, before giving a detailed confession.
Police said George, 48, was killed around 7 am yesterday, at her Preau Village East, St Mary’s, Moruga home four days after she left the safety of her sister’s house at La Rufin. Her alleged assailant was found at the murder scene, holding a cutlass. Police said George was in her living room when she was attacked by a man. He chopped her repeatedly about the head and neck, slitting her throat and jugular veins. He then placed her body on the bed and covered it with a sheet.
George’s stepson, Anton Monsegue, arrived a short while later and saw the man downstairs. “He told me that he fed up and he killed Donna. He said to call the police,” Monsegue recalled, his eyes brimming with tears. Monsegue said he did not know what triggered the murder.
However, the murdered woman’s sister, Debbie James, said the problems started three months ago when a man accused George of having an affair with his relative. She said last week Sunday, the man locked George in the house, tied her and was about to stab her but she defecated which temporarily prevented her demise. After that incident she moved out of the St Mary’s home and came to stay with James at La Rufin. However, the suspect begged George to come back, James said.
“I told her don’t go, that the man will kill her because he came in my house with a knife and a bottle of Swiper (poison). He threatened to burn down my house and kill me so I know he dangerous. He went to her Cepep work and told them he will kill her but she still decided to go back,” James added. On the day her sister left, James said she begged the suspect not to ill-treat George. Neighbour Eugenia Gibbaroo said one week ago, she counselled the man.
“He told me that he was going to kill Donna. I thought it was a joke. I didn’t believe he was capable of murder,” Gibbaroo recalled. She explained that George was a kind-hearted, good-natured woman who knew the suspect for over 33 years. George’s sister-in-law Magdalene Thomas also said the murder was shocking. She said she spoke to George and the suspect for over an hour on Wednesday night. “They were happy. Who would have believed this would happen?” Thomas said.
George’s living room was stained with her blood and relatives removed a bloodied mattress and clothing which they set afire at the side of the house. An autopsy is expected to be done on George’s body today at the Forensic Science Centre in St James. Sgt Anderson Pariman is heading police investigations.
