When we arrived in front of the yard, he was still standing there and upon walking in the passageway, she gave me her cellphone and asked for it to be charged, so I came in the yard leaving her outside with paddy.”The family disclosed that they were in the house when they heard faint screams coming from the passageway, so they rushed out, only to see the gruesome scene.“In the dark, a gunshot was fired and by the time we reached to the front we noticed Selina drop to the floor, gasping for breath with blood gushing from her. We thought she was shot but it was our neighbour firing warning shots to scare off Paddy,” the sister recalled.“We called 911, 912, 913 and all were engaged so we called Kitty Cabs to come who rushed her to the hospital.”The mother of one was stabbed in her abdomen, breast, back, chin and face, with large gashing cuts inflicted on both her hands, a few of which almost reportedly killed her.Sewnarine and Ramotar shared an on-and-off relationship that lasted about ten years but the couple had never lived together.The distressed family revealed that Sewnarine would, from time to time, display violent outbursts by slapping, choking and punching her and he would usually stalk the woman.From Left: Tricia Ramotar (sister), Daughter (eight years old) and Melina Ramotar (mother)It was also disclosed that Paddy is married and living with his wife but still chooses to pursue his child-mother.After the gruesome stabbing incident Sewnarine who is a bus driver on route 40, was tied up by neighbours and turned over to the Police who are investigating the crime.last_img read more
