A man, simply identified as Nonso has been remanded for allegedly attempting to cut the throat of a 25-year-old woman in Umuona village, Isuofia, in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The suspect was said to have dug a 4-feet grave at the back of his compound to bury the victim (said to be his lover) with her two kids, a 5-year-old son, and 3-year old daughter, but with different fathers.

The victim, Uchendu Uchechukwu, who claimed to be an orphan and fourth child to a family of eight, said she had been fending for herself after her parents’ demise forced her to drop out of school at SS2.

She said, “I do menial jobs like picking palm fruits and make between N500 to N700 daily to feed myself and the two kids.

“In 2021, I met Nonso, a young man who claimed to be a native doctor. He promised to marry me. That was why he was frequenting my house in the last one year.

“On that fateful day, he called me to come around with my children for a surprise package. Without any suspicion, I accepted the offer and he asked his friend to convey us on his motorcycle.

“On arrival, he asked me to close my eyes while he tied my face with a white handkerchief in anticipation of a surprise package. He used sharp knife to slit my throat, forcing me to struggle for survival.

“Immediately, he dragged me to the already dug grave, pushed me in, using a big stone to force me to remain there while he went to bring shovel to bury me with the kids alive.

“It was at that point that I started shouting for help which attracted his elder sister, who had already gone to bed to run out, and she called other people to rescue me.”

The Nation gathered on Saturday, November 26, 2022, that the suspect was immediately apprehended by the mob who stripped and paraded him before handing him over to security agents, while his accomplice who rode the motorcycle escaped.

Uchechukwu called on security operatives to assist her in ensuring that justice is served in the matter.

“I call on government and security agents to ensure justice is done. I’m ready to return to my nylon-producing business if I can be assisted in repairing the damaged machines,” she said.

When the matter was called up at the Children, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Court, sitting in Awka and presided over by Magistrate Genevieve Osakwe, the suspect was remanded in prison custody for attempted murder.

Homeless Man Slits Woman’s Throat After She Let Him Into Her House To Take A Shower

A Utah woman’s throat was slit by a homeless man after she let him into her home to take a shower, according to the Salt Lake City Police Department.

Police were called to the apartment around 5:00 p.m. last Sunday after receiving a report of a “woman bleeding heavily.”

The victim, whose identity has not been released by police, was transported to a local hospital for emergency surgery and was later upgraded to a critical but stable condition.

She told police that she let the suspect inside her residence so he could shower and described him as homeless.

The suspect, 30-year-old Eric Jones, was arrested two miles away from where he allegedly slit the woman’s throat in the early hours of February 11. He was charged with one count of aggravated assault.

Salt Lake City police detective Michelle Mechling said it’s unclear if the victim knew the suspect.

“It goes along with – know who you’re letting into your house and don’t let people you don’t know into your house,” Mechling told FOX 13 Utah.
