Relatives of the first homicide victim for 2016, Joseph Herman, said his attacker had issued death threats to him on countless occasions and the matter was before the courts.
Herman’s relatives claim that the both he and his girlfriend, Jacky Roberts, have been constantly harassed by his alleged attacker, who is a female.
This publication understands that Herman and his girlfriend have been attending court for the past 9 years, over threats the female allegedly made to the couple.
The court had even issued a restraining order to the female who is being accused of stabbing Herman, but this never made any difference, because she always kept troubling the couple.
Reports are that on the night of the stabbing, Roberts was on Jeremie Street, when the female, issued more death threats.
Scared for her life, Roberts sought protection in a nearby boutique and called her boyfriend to get her. But on arrival, the female who was in the company of a group of thugs allegedly stabbed Herman.
Upon realizing what had happened, Roberts went outside to assist Herman, but the female and the group of thugs, as she described them, allegedly dealt several blows on her body.
Despite they were both in a bad condition; Roberts managed to take Herman to her car and drove to Victoria Hospital, where he was admitted. But she claims that the female followed her all the way into the emergency room and allegedly removed his oxygen mask.
Herman was stabbed multiple times on Old Year’s night and succumbed on New Year’s Day.
