(Trinidad Express) Police are at Barrackpore investigating a murder where a woman was allegedly killed by a close male relative in a case of domestic violence.
Shortly after day break on Wednesday, the man walked into the Barrackpore police station and allegedly confessed to the officers.
Police officers took the man to his home at Sukhan Trace, where the woman’s body was found.
The man was taken into police custody.
Snr Supt Wayne Mohammed, officers of the Southern Division Task Force and Homicide Region III have also responded.
In April, Commissioner of Police Gary Griffith had said there has been a spike in the number of domestic violence cases in the country.

In February 2019 there were 39 reports, but this year there have been 73.
