A resident of Bequia died Wednesday after receiving chops wounds about the body, reportedly inflicted by one of his sons.
The man has been identified as Colville Ollivierre, a 48-year-old resident of Paget Farm.
Police are alleging that Ollivierre died after being chopped by his 22-year-old son, Diondrous Williams, during an incident at Gellizeau in Paget Farm, around 10:30 p.m.
Ollivierre died at the Port Elizabeth Clinic, where he was taken, after the incident.
A cutlass was reportedly used to inflict the fatal wounds.
This is the second fatal cutlass attack this year on the normally placid northern Grenadine island, which normally does not make any contribution to the national homicide count, which has now reached 31 this year.
In July, Hyacinth Hoyte, a 65-year-old domestic of Paget Farm was killed and her husband, Marcs Hoyte, a 65-year-old stevedore of the same address, injured during a cutlass attack at their home.
The man police had suspected of committing those crimes was later found dead in the burnt out ground floor of a house on the island.
Initially investigations suggested that he locked himself in the building and set it afire, police said then
