73-Y-O Woman Allegedly Kills Husband Over Reported Exclusion From Will

(JAMAICA OBSERVER) – A 73-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of her husband in Cabbage Valley district, St Elizabeth on Saturday.

Enid Townsend, a farmer, is expected to appear before the St Elizabeth Parish Court later this week.

Townsend, who is still in police custody, is charged for the death of her husband, Arthur, also a farmer, who was killed following a disagreement over his will.

It was reported that around 4:00am last Saturday, the couple was at home when they reportedly had a dispute over a will that the husband was purportedly preparing.

The wife, the police said, became upset that her husband was not including her name in the will.

An argument reportedly developed during which a sharp object was used to stab Arthur all over his body, killing him on the spot. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. The wife was subsequently taken into custody.
