A 31-year-old man who was killed by his lover at a home in New Village on Saturday night, Oct. 24, has been described as a victim of domestic violence.

Dave Monrose, an employee of Carasco & Son Ltd. in Castries, succumbed at at Victoria Hospital after he was reportedly stabbed by his common-law-wife.

Members of the community have told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that Monrose and his girlfriend, who had three children together, had a rocky relationship that included countless disputes and physical abuse. It is also alleged that the couple had also appeared in the Family Court.

Residents further alleged that the couple had a “heated fight” a day before the homicide.

One blogger also mentioned this in a post on SNO: “Two nights ago our church bus went to drop a member Carellie passing….it was about after 12, heard a big slap from the female to this man on our way down. Is like they have been fighting. I know the two very well, that is why I was able to identify them. This has been going on for years now between them.”

A source close to the deceased told SNO that on the night of the fatal incident, Monrose was accused of having an affair with another female in the area.

“The girl stab the man because she think he checking a girl in the area. The girl they stab the man for, everyone fraid the girl. She is real drama. Shooter was a good youth. Garcon trust me, that bring tears to my eyes,” the friend alleged.

He added: “That man was always jovial, could always make you laugh; a Miami Heat fan, so we always had it going on during the NBA season. Garcon, trust me, I feel that one and a lot of people too. He was a good youth, good comrade, no drama, no-trouble youth.”

However, other persons close to the suspect, paint a different image of the deceased, saying he was the abuser in the tumultuous relationship.

“Those comments about a good youth kills my heart. The way this man was beating the poor female that night and he constantly said to her “I f– killing you”, what good youth says that,” said one source.

“He even attacked his sister who attempted to separate him and the female. He insulted his mother. He would not back down. This hurts. It’s sad she resorted to this.”

The couple lived with three children. The woman is now in police custody.

  3. SNO was quick to put the guys name who stab his gf where's the woman name we can see angle y'all take keep it up


    • Ignorant is the correct name you used. The woman accused of stabbing Dave Monrose has not been charged. We have said it over and over, names cannot be disclosed unless persons are charged. The young man who allegedly stabbed Bernard was identified AFTER he was charged.


  4. a woman killed a man again ,violence against men i want to know if people will march for that and protest and put his name on a list with others who have been abused by women and speak out against it just like when they do for women who have been abused by men

  7. Very sad news today. Should have never came to this. Now those kids are going to be raised without their parents. Smh. No one ever thinks of the kids these days. If you are in a poisonous relationship just leave before it gets brutal.


  8. the last comment saying he wasn't a good youth because he wasn't backing down because he was in the fight with her that night and he cursed his mother and thought with his sister well then that's your opinion but remember the lord knows and sees all ok and he without sin cast the first stone. We run down people of what the do / did just because we don't so such or others don't know we do such but when you check it out we are even worse than what we are saying he's bad for.


  9. So mother kills father and which of the parents are in a position to take care of their children when one parent is dead and the other is in jail?
    How do the children cope with the knowledge that mummy killed daddy and which parent should the children blame for a tragedy like that?


  10. I don't think you need to be a troubled youth to abuse your spouse or partner. And he's been doing it to her for years!!!.. I'm not here to judge you boo boo ... but may god have mercy on u.. maybe if people here your story of being in this relationship and what u went through .. despite your actions it'll shed some light on what it ended up to be .... stay strong ... and pray .. God is never far from us ... hang in there

  13. By the first act of domestic violence, please leave the relationship because it WILL happen again.


  14. Smh comments like she should've kill him 100 times are very ignorant. If the man was being abused by this female and he stabbed her it would be a completely different story. I think we should just agree that they're both human and no one has the right to abuse/kill another person. #stopdoublestandards


    • Agreed totally. I don't know the details of this couple's relationship and what led to his demise, however in general I think that society is ignoring our men and boys. When we think of domestic violence we think mostly of women. Again I do not know the details but I really would like to see more awareness when it comes to focusing on what males in our society face. Be it domestic violence, illness etc. More focus needs to be placed on our men. Perhaps if we start creating that sort of awareness our men would think that they have avenues and places to turn to when they are facing turbulent times. Already they are socialized to be macho and not display weakness, but they are vulnerable too.


  15. It take a woman that really frustrated to do that cause some men deserve it


    • Why are you condoning murder? Just know that no one deserves to be killed as we all sin. Sin is sin no matter the size or depth. Imagine if The Most High did to us the things we wish for others. Anyone alive has the chance of repentance. She had options. Leave the guy. Call the police. No one should take anyone's life.


  16. Something is wrong somewhere our children are dying, our brothers are killing each other ,our sisters are killing our brothers what are we trying to do thin the herd. Sickening absolutely sickening makes me want to throw up,then again when you choose a behavior you choose the consequences. We live in a sick society that manifests itself in ways we cannot even imagine.....Young man RIP. Ms Thing I hope you are off your high horse now and asking yourself why did I do it too late how many bad decisions can one person make in a day? Go figure it out, you have a short fuse go cool off now.
