Man charged with wife’s murder


    An Arima man has been charged with the murder of his wife.

    On May 28th, officers found the burnt body of Amanda Leid as they responded to a report of a disturbance at her home.

    They observed a fire at an apartment and when the blaze was extinguished, her body was found under a bedframe in a bedroom.

    The accused sought medical attention at the Port of Spain General Hospital and was arrested later that day in connection with the incident.

    He was due to appear before a Magistrate today.
