Sources told this paper Thursday that both Abul and Morris had gone out on Wednesday night to settle a long standing dispute that had affected their relationship and upon their return at Abul’s house, both got into an argument after Johnson insisted to spend the night over and Abul rejected the idea.
Police Spokesman Moses Carter confirmed the incident on Thursday saying the tragic incident occurred Thursday morning at about 2:10am in the S.K.D. Sports Complex Community in Paynesville.
According to him, Pinky allegedly stabbed and killed Morris when the victim and the accused had a serious misunderstanding at her residence in the S.K.D. Sports Complex Community during the victim’s visit there.
Pinky who is currently being treated at the state run John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital for a stab wound allegedly sustained from the fight with the victim is said to be handcuffed at her bed as a form of arrest. She and the late Johnson were rushed at the hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Victim Johnson was a resident of the R2 Community on the Robertsfield Highway.
Pinky will face Police investigation upon her release from the JFK; Mr. Carter says the suspect will face intensive investigation.
