Murder suspect: She stole my money
THE man held for slitting the throat of CEPEP worker Donna George as she lay in bed at the family home in Moruga on Wednesday, allegedly told police he killed her over stolen money.
The 49-year-old male relative allegedly told police at the St Mary's Police Post he chopped George on the neck around 3 a.m. The killing was witnessed by an eight-year-old boy who lived at the house.
George, 48, and the suspect, an employee at the Ministry of Agriculture, shared a 30-year relationship and lived at Preau Road.
After killing the woman, the suspect told the boy to go tell the neighbours what had happened.
Police arrived at the scene and found the suspect sitting in a hammock near the house.
The killer told police he and George had an argument earlier that day over money.
The Express was also told that the killer had suspected that George recently became involved with another man.
The man told police he checked a bank account and found that money was missing, and he had confronted her about it.
A post-mortem was expected to be conducted on George's body yesterday.
