Jealous boyfriend dies after allegedly being stabbed by lover

ST JAMES, Jamaica- A St James man who was allegedly stabbed by his lover during a physical altercation on June 6 succumbed to his injuries on Friday morning.

Reports from the St James police are that the now deceased man, 28-year-old O'Brian Taylor of an Appleton Hall address, was standing inside the Montego Bay Transportation Centre when he saw his female partner with a male companion.

Taylor reportedly became jealous and an argument is said to have occurred between him and the woman when she pulled a "small brown handle knife from her handbag" which was allegedly used to stab Taylor to the left side of his chest.

A well-placed OBSERVER ONLINE source stated that Taylor then ran to the Barnett Street Police Station where he collapsed.

The man was assisted by officers to the Cornwall Regional Hospital where he was being treated.

"The accused female later went to the Barnett Street Police Station where she handed over the knife and was subsequently arrested," the police said.

The St James Police are investigating.
