A dispute between lovers came to a vicious end when a wife was alleged to have used a knife to stab her common-law husband, killing him because he was reportedly unfaithful.

Dead is 28-year-old Leon Lemount of a Kingston 20 address.

It is alleged that last Wednesday about 4:30 p.m., Lemount and his common-law wife were at their home in Callaloo Mews when they had a fight. The altercation between the two ended when a knife was used to stab Lemount. He died on his way to the Kingston Public Hospital.

A police attached to the Area Four Division confirmed to THE STAR that the couple did have a domestic dispute. “Before they started fighting, both had a dispute about the deceased man cheating on the accused,” said the officer.
