The woman accused of stabbing 45-year-old Joseph Herman on Old Year’s night has been officially charged.
Reports are that Melissa Joseph was charged with ‘causing death’ on Friday, January 8, 2016.
Herman was allegedly stabbed six times on Old Year’s night on Jeremie Street, Castries. He later succumbed to his injuries on New Year’s Day.
Herman’s relatives claim Joseph had issued death threats to him on countless occasions and both he and his girlfriend, Jacky Roberts, were constantly harassed by the woman.
They said the matter had been before the courts for the past 9 years.
Reports are that on the night of the stabbing, Joseph allegedly issued more death threats to Roberts, forcing her to seek protection at a nearby boutique.
Roberts called Herman to get her, but when he showed up, he was allegedly attacked by Joseph and a group of thugs. He was stabbed and left on the pavement, before being rushed to the hospital, where he later died.
