Wife charged with husband’s murder
Hermina Jackson is expected to spend the next two months behind bars, pending the outcome of a Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the death of her husband Henry.
Last week, police officers reported that the La Croix man lost his life at the hands of his wife on July 11, in what they described as a domestic dispute.
According to police, Henry Jackson, 67, was stabbed by his wife Hermina Jackson, 49, sometime after 11 p.m. at their home.
Jackson, who was a retired driver from the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA), was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Evesham Health Centre.
It is also reported that their eight-year-old son witnessed the violent killing.
As a result, Hermina was brought before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias last Friday, charged with her husbandâs murder.
She was not allowed to enter a plea, as the charge was laid indictably.
The PI into the matter is scheduled to begin on September 13, 2017.
