Another man chops wife, children

Another man chops wife, children
A man Thursday night went berserk and chopped his wife and three of their children at their Sophia home.

Initial reports suggest that the angry man, Shawn Fordyce, did not want his wife, 47-year old Dorothy Blackman, to go out. Blackman is said to be a newspaper vendor on Orange Walk, Georgetown.

When she opted to send someone to buy a phone card, an argument ensued and he began chopping his wife and children. The incident occurred at 139 Section D, Sophia.

Those injured are 12-year old Donnette Fordyce with chop wounds to both hands, 26-year old Wonda Fortune who sustained a chop wound to her neck and 20-year old Latoya Wilson with multiple deep chop wounds about her body.

The assailant was still at large up to late Thursday night.

This latest incident mirrors another that occurred one night earlier at Zeelugt North, East Bank Essequibo when a man chopped his two young children to death and severely injured his reputed wife.

I know this guy; he delivers papers to our office on work-days.; a pleasant fellow, if there is one - must have tripped; made lots of sacrifices;I suspect there may be some ingratitude in there somewhere in all of this. No excuse! Just an attempt at explainin`.
