Police say they are treating as a homicide, pending autopsy results, the death of a woman whose body was found at her home around 6 a.m. on Thursday.
Jetonnia Stephens, age given as 32, is believed to have died overnight at the Kearton, Barrouallie home she shared with her husband, Paul Stephens, and their 4-month old daughter.
Initial reports were that the woman’s throat had been slit.
However, a senior detective told iWitness News Thursday afternoon that investigators dispatched to the scene had found no evidence of this.
The widower, a 42-year-old businessman, originally from Chateaubelair, is said to have called the police after finding his wife dead around 6 a.m.
