A businesswoman and her common-law husband died after they stabbed each other during a “argument” over the management of their business, police said.

The incident occurred Sunday at their business premises located at Ekereku Hill top, Kamarang.

Investigators learned that Selima Norton, AKA ‘Shelly’, 45 years of New Providence Housing Scheme, EBD and Kurt Reynolds, 37 years of Silverballi Street, Meadow Brook Gardens, who were operating a business at Ekereku, had an argument over the mismanagement of their business by Reynolds.

“As a result, the argument escalated into a headed encounter, during which process, it was alleged that Norton armed herself with a two-bladed knife and inflicted two stabs to Reynolds’ abdomen and left foot. Reynolds then allegedly, took away the weapon and stabbed Norton multiple times about her body, after which they both collapsed some distance apart and bled to death,” police said.
A blood stained double blade knife was recovered at the scene.

The bodies are presently at the Memorial Gardens Funeral Home awaiting post mortem examinations, later this week.
