By Benjamin Flowers: Police have arrested and charged a Cayo man for attacking his ex-commonlaw wife on Saturday.
Sr. Superintendent Hilberto Romero, Deputy Commander of the National Crimes Investigation Branch, said that the victim made a complaint around 5:21 p.m. that her ex-commonlaw husband 44-year-old Edin Chi met up with her in the Corozalito and they got into an altercation.
During that altercation he attacked her, hitting her several times with the hammer. She was taken to the Corozal Community hospital where a doctor classified her injuries.
“Chi was charged with grievous harm, use of deadly means of harm, and attempted murder,” Romero said.
He added that the two have had incidents of violence reported in the past. Chi was arraigned in court earlier today.
