The 19-year-old female who is charged for fatally stabbing her boyfriend in Banse, Laborie on Saturday, Nov. 24, was remanded until Jan. 22, 2013 when she appeared in court today, Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Anushka Alfred of La Ressource allegedly stabbed 30-year-old Cuthbert ‘Darcus’ Maximin during an altercation at his home.

Maximin died as a result of “hemorrhagic shock secondary to a stab wound”, according to the result of his post mortem examination conducted on Monday, Nov. 26, police said.

Family members and friends told St. Lucia News Online that the couple had a stormy relationship triggered by fights over “trust issues” and “petty things”.

Maximin is the second man in three months to be allegedly killed by his lover.

On Sept. 2, 2012, at about 5 a.m., Donna Lyn Lesmond allegedly shot her husband, police officer Lucan Lesmond, in the face with his occupational firearm at their La Toc apartment. Neighbours told reporters that they had witnessed fights and quarrels between the couple.

The wife is scheduled to stand trial for murder next year.

  1. The first reaction the majority of us Saint Lucian have is to resort to VIOLENCE. Why is that? As someone said, count to 10 and walk away. Walking away from a potential violent situation proves you are the bigger, stronger person. It does not make you any less of an individual.

  3. It is not always easy to walk away. We must not judge. Perhaps there should be a retreat where victims of domestic violence can go - a place of safety and support to help deal with the emotional turmoil faced.

  5. The bible say,judge not less he be judged... let's stop pointing fingers,stop blaming those whose life have now shattered. We family,friends,neighbors,we saw were this was going,we saw pain,struggle,fear,we heard complaints, but did we ever push hard enough to show loyal support? did we encourage them to look within,to see beauty,strength,potential? we talk so much nonsense,and judge soo quickly and broadcast faster than the radio,that our young ppl are afraid to talk to us. For the men,boys who like hitting women,insulting women,if you really LOVE your mother,LOVE your sister,you CAN AND WILL NEVER raise your hand on a woman. Right now lets pray for this young lady, because there is no sin to big for God to forgive,let's pray for the young mans family that God will give them comfort. No one won the battle,two families in pain. ppl let's stop yapping and stand,encourage,pray,show love to our young ppl

  11. A 19 year old in a relationship with a 30 year old. And we call that relationship rocky? Just the thought is disturbing.... tragedy, not necessarily death, is too often the end result. May he rest in peace and I pray that she finally gets the support that she needs. She is too young to be in such deep turmoil.
