Family shocked by violent death
ON MONDAY, Antonio “De Bain” Stanford ate, drank and made merry as he celebrated his 37th birthday. However, he died yesterday after being stabbed in the chest sometime after 1:30 p.m.
The self-employed father of three was reportedly involved in an altercation with another man near his Phillips Road, St Stephen’s Hill, St Michael home when he received the stab wound to his upper chest. He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) by private car, and was later pronounced dead.
The man whom he reportedly had the altercation with is undergoing treatment at the QEH for multiple stab wounds. He was taken to the QEH by ambulance. Police have withheld his name.
Last night, Stanford’s mother Cheryl, who lives in the district, was too distraught to speak, while his partner for the last 18 years, Kaymar Greenidge, sat with the couple’s children and a close friend silently crying, shocked by her unexpected loss.
