Murder/suicideBy Andrew CarmichaelThe woman who was stabbed to death by her husband at Williamsburg, Corentyne over the weekend had reportedly known that her husband had wanted her dead and had planned to carry out the act himself.On Sunday night, the body of 40-year-old Indrawattie Totaram, also called ‘Shabrina,’ was discovered lying in a pool of blood in her one-bedroom house. Her husband, 36-year-old Krishna Latchman, also called ‘Jooka’, was found in the same building hanging by the neck from a rope tied to a rafter.The now dead woman’s niece has revealed that Indrawattie Totaram had known that she was going to be killed. Elizabeth Majramootoo told this publication that the woman had prepared her mind for the worst. The niece said she and her deceased aunt had spent some time together on Saturday.“She was crying on the bed and she told me that she gon dead. She say that Uncle Jooka gon kill she…She had money and she take the money and give it to me, and take off all her jewellery and put it in my hand and say to make something for my son,” Elizabeth recalled.The Police have said that on arrival at the scene, the husband was observed hanging from a rope which was tied around? his neck and attached to a rafter. His feet were about 4 inches above the floor, and a gas bottle was seen next to his body. His wife, Indrawattie, was seen lying on her left side on the floor in the bedroom, motionless in a pool of blood. She was reportedly naked and her body had two stab wounds to her right breast, two stab wounds to her right side rib cage, and one stab wound to her right arm. An electrical wire was seen tied around her neck as well. A knife with what appeared to be blood stains was seen on a fridge top in the kitchen.A relative of the deceased couple indicated that Krishna Latchman had, on several occasions in the past, accused his wife of infidelity. The relative claimed that the woman would leave the home for several days and then return. Last week, she reportedly left the home again on Thursday, and returned on Friday. The bodies were discovered on Sunday evening, and from eyewitnesses’ account, it’s very likely they had been dead for more than a day prior to their bodies being discovered.But while Krishna has been portrayed to be a very quiet individual, evidence suggests he had had a violent side that was unknown to persons.Investigations are continuing.
