Man stabbed to death by common-law wife

A Peruvian Vale family is still mourning the death of one of their loved ones who met an untimely death recently.

Yesterday, Steve Roland Job was laid to rest at the Biabou Cemetery, one week after he received a fatal stab wound to the right side of his neck. {{more}}

A police press release disclosed that last week Friday night at about 9.00, Job and his common law wife, Yvonne Ward, had a dispute which ended with the 34-year-old labourer receiving the wound.

Allan Paul, Job’s father, said the young man was his son.

“I can’t explain how I feel. You know how it is to have one thing and lose it,” said the bereaved father.

On the other hand, Niesha Jackson, Job’s cousin, described him as one who had a quiet personality.

“He was good, quiet, if you talk to him he will talk to you, but most times he was quiet,” Jackson said.

“I feel bad, down, everybody in the home feels down,” she lamented.

Another cousin, Nelisha Jackson, said her cousin’s death had her feeling sad.

Meanwhile, Veronica Paul, Job’s mother, is hoping that she would get justice for her son’s death.

The police are carrying out investigations into the circumstances that led to Job’s death.
