8-year-old girl and her mother stabbed to death in Marabella

An 8-year-old girl and her 40-year-old mother were stabbed to death at their home on Tuesday morning.

They have been identified as Hollice Thomas, a security guard of Battoo Street, Marabella and Noel Thomas, 8.

Thomas’s common-law husband Marcus John told police he left home around 6 am to go to work. When he returned three hours later around 9:30am, he saw blood on the bedroom floor.

John said Thomas was lying face down with a wound to the neck. He then made another check and found Noel lying at the side of her bed, bleeding from a stab to her neck.

She was rushed to the San Fernando General Hospital where she died shortly after.

Investigations are underway.
