A 44-year-old Mayaro man is believed to have committed suicide after he attempted to poison his 37-year-old wife yesterday.
Steve Bain, of Coconut Grove Village, Ortoire Village, died at the Sangre Grande Area Hospital hours after he served a cup of tea laced with a poisonous substance to Neltia Abraham at their home.
According to police, around 7 a.m. Bain gave the tea to Abraham for breakfast.
Police were told that after taking the first sip, Abraham complained the tea had a bitter taste.
Within minutes, she began to vomit and had diarrhoea.
Bain took Abraham to the Mayaro District Hospital and left her while she was undergoing treatment.
He then returned to his home, where he placed the barrel of his licensed shotgun to his chest and pulled the trigger.
He died while undergoing treatment.
An autopsy is expected to be conducted on his body today.
PC Ramkissoon, of the Mayaro Police Station, is continuing investigations into the incident.
