The19-year old mother of a four-month old baby was stabbed to death by her estranged 49-year old partner after she told him that she wanted to end the relationship, police and relatives said.
Onica Greaves was stabbed multiple times about her body Monday evening by Robert Stanley who is now fighting for his life after attempting suicide by drinking gramoxone. He is under police guard at the New Amsterdam Hospital.
The incident occurred at Angoy’s Avenue/ Cow Dam, New Amsterdam. She was stabbed multiple times, resulting in damage to her heart, lungs and liver, police sources said.
Greaves met her death after she responded to Stanley’s request to return from Georgetown because the baby was sick. She had decided to go to Georgetown to eke out a living because, according to relatives, the part-time tradesman had not been providing sufficient financial support.
When she arrived at her mother’s home at Angoy’s Avenue, he told Greaves’ mother that the relationship had ended and that he would take care of the baby.
Abiola Greaves told reporters that she and her daughter eventually went to their bedroom and fed the baby. Moments later, Onica went to the standpipe to wash the feeding bottle when she heard her daughter screaming “Oh God, ah dead, Randy going to kill me”.
It was only then that Mrs. Greaves said she realised that Stanley had been lurking in the yard. Stanley had maintained that he if he could not have had a relationship with her, no one else could.
Stanley and his wife, who died 18 years ago, have four children ages 18,21,23 and 25 years.
