Woman stabbed to death in church
PORT OF SPAIN – The intervention of two clergymen was not enough to save the life of a 36-year-old woman who was stabbed to death in the washroom of a church in Chaguanas on Thursday evening.
Fabiola Ramona Chacon was stabbed multiple times in the chest by a man who had threatened to end her life a week ago.
Relatives said she was in a secret relationship with the 54-year-old man for several months before marrying on Christmas Day last year.
Chacon lived in Belgrade Street, East Dry River, Port of Spain.
A relative of Chacon said: “Fabiola returned to her mother’s home in Techier Village, Point Fortin, last week. She said the man pulled a knife and said he will kill her, so she came back home.
“She was involved in these AIDS awareness sessions and went to one in Siparia yesterday. The (suspect) was in anger management classes at the church (in Longdenville), but we did not know she was going to meet him there.”
Police said Chacon and the man went to the Apostles’ Ministries in Amarsingh Street, Longdenville, Chaguanas, at around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday to attend a counselling session with two church leaders.
Investigators said Chacon and the man were being interviewed by the clergymen when they began arguing.
Chacon walked away and went into the washroom, located inside the church.
Police said the church leaders were talking to the man when he became enraged and ran into the washroom and began stabbing Chacon.
The clergymen followed and found her on the floor. (Express)
