Queens Guyanese Woman Stabs Husband To Death

Hardbeatnews, QUEENS, N.Y., Weds. Mar. 22, 2006: A 38-year-old Guyanese national has been charged in the fatal stabbing of her husband in their South Ozone Park residence in Queens, N.Y.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown identified the alleged killer as Sharon Shivlall, of 124-08 116th Avenue in South Ozone Park. According to a criminal complaint, the defendant allegedly attacked her husband, John Shivlall, 43, inside their basement apartment between 7 and 8:14 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, striking him once in the left side of his neck with a kitchen knife, causing his death.

District Attorney Brown said, "The couple had a long history of domestic violence and each had orders of protection outstanding against the other.”

“They were, according to neighbors, always fighting and should never have been residing together,” he stated yesterday. “During their allegedly stormy relationship the police were called to their home more than two dozen times. It appears that the parties could neither live with nor live without each other - with tragic results."

Shivlal was arrested on Monday night by officers of New York City Police Department's 106th Precinct and was set to be arraigned late yesterday in Criminal Court in Kew Gardens.

She has been charged with murder in the second degree, manslaughter in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree. If convicted, she faces 25 years to life in prison. –
