A 35-year old man was stabbed to death yesterday allegedly by his sister-in-law in 19 Miles, May Pen, Clarendon.

He has been identified as Marco Dane Thompson.

Information reaching The Gleaner is that Thompson was at the bar which is owned and operated by his sister-in-law when he ordered a drink.

He, however, became angry because he was not attended to immediately, resulting in him using his hands to hit her in the head and side.

The sister--in-law, Lydia Beacon, reportedly used an ice prick to stab Thompson in his left side after he did not yield to her warnings to stop hitting her.

He reportedly ran outside and drove off in his car, but crashed a few metres along the roadway.

Thompson was taken to the May Pen Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Beacon is now in custody.
