Hundreds of Vincentians today marched through streets of the capital Kingstown ahead of a vigil to protest the murder of a nurse allegedly by her husband.

"We want justice," some of the protesters chanted.

A week ago, the Cuban-born nurse Arianna Taylor Israel was shot dead at the St Martins Secondary School where one of their sons is a student.

Her husband, Mitch Israel, who has since been arrested in connection with the murder appeared in court on Monday.

He has been remanded.
