Toddler killed, mother treated
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Police say a former resident from the east coast of Demerara in Guyana is assisting them in the death of a two-year-old child who was battered and killed at his home in Aranquez east of here yesterday.
Police said also that Davika Ranie-Roopchand, 21, the mother of Etean George-Smith, had also sought medical treatment in what they believe to have been a domestic dispute.
According to the police, Ranie-Roopchand and the suspect, both Guyanese nationals, had an argument on Wednesday night. They had been living here for the past five years.
The toddler’s father, Edward Smith, a Trinidadian, said when he saw his son’s “black and blue body … I could not take that…I dropped down one time and cry.” (CMC)
