Another Woman Dies At The Hand Of An Abusive Relationship
Even as some Groups representing women continue to agitate for action, women continue to be on the receiving end of brutal attacks by their spouses. Saturday’s attack that left a nursery school teacher Natalie Loncke dead was the latest in a string of incidents for this year already.
Loncke’s common law relationship started some five months and while some relatives were apparently not aware of the abuse suffered by dead woman, other persons close to her painted a different picture saying that she suffered regular beatings.
Reports are that Loncke and her partner had an altercation last Saturday which resulted in her being stabbed several times to the head and neck. The woman’s daughter also received injuries as she rushed to her mother’s aid. Loncke died while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital. Her attacker meanwhile remains on the run.
Several groups and individuals have long expressed concern about this mountain trend of violence against women.
