Morvant couple to face murder charges*

Dr Broadbridge slain at home...

Two people are expected to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate today charged with the murder of former National Museum director Dr Claire Broadbridge.
The two, a 34-year-old joi­ner and his 32-year-old wife, of Morvant, were held over the weekend at their home.
Investigators of the Ho­micide Bureau approached officials at the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions late yesterday, following which instructions were given to charge the couple.
Broadbridge was found dead in the bedroom of her Fondes Amandes, St Ann's, home on September 2.
She was stabbed twice before her throat was slashed.
An attempt had been made to burn down the buil­ding by setting a fire in the living room of the house— located on the ground floor —however, this was quickly contained by responding fire officers.
