While in front of the child’s mother’s home, her ex-husband reportedly drove up and struck her off of the bike.

He reportedly exited the car, attacked the woman with a knife, and stabbed her several times before fleeing the scene.

During their marriage, Ramchandar suffered constant abuse at the hands of her husband.

The couple had no children. The Police are on the hunt for the suspect who is said to be living in East Canje, Berbice.
