Brooklyn landlady charged in murder of Guyanese woman
The Police Investigators believe the Landlady Leah Cuevas did the gruesome crime of first stabbing multiple times Brooklyn based Guyanese Chinelle Latoya Brown then dismembering the body and throwing the body parts in various locations in Long Island. The landlady made an initial appearance in court in Long Island today Thursday July 24, 2014 charged with second degree murder of her tenant.
The Prosecutor told the court in Central Islip that forensic tests confirmed that all the parts belonged to Browne. The last body part found was her head that was also dumped in a clump of bushes along the route back to Brooklyn from Long Island. The torso was the first part found about a mile away from where the sister of the accused lived in Bay Shore. The Prosecutor told a shocked court room in graphic detail, how the heinous crime was committed and what the medical examiner found, multiple stab wounds and severed parts.
The detail was too much for Browne’s siblings, in-laws and friends in the courtroom. They sobbed and consoled each other as they heard how Browne met her death. The husband Dale Browne said that his wife was a caring mother who looked out for her family. He noted that it is his faith that is keeping him and the rest of the family going. The Guyanese mother of four was last seen on Saturday July 5th the same day she last made contact with her husband, Dale Browne who was in Guyana with their children at that time. The police are investigating whether another person may have been involved in the killing. The prosecutor said that there was an incident the day before when the accused and her husband Vladimir confronted their tenant. The police responded to that incident.
The Prosecutor detailed that on the fateful Saturday another fight ensued on the first floor apartment over rent and payment for utilities and Browne could be heard screaming at her Sumpter Ave apartment. The accused Leah Cuevas was remanded to prison until her next court appearance.
