Woman dies one month after being brutally chopped, burned by husband

Dead: 53-year-old Sharon Bobb

After fighting just over a month to stay alive, 53-year-old Sharon Bobb, who was brutally chopped and burned by her husband, who killed their son and took his life, has died.

According to family members, the 53-year-old woman died in the wee hours of Sunday at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).

It was reported that Sharon and her husband, Leon Bobb, had an ongoing domestic dispute in which he would accuse her of having extra-marital affairs.

However, on September 21, 2022, at about 02:30h, Police said that Sharon was seen running out of her house with blood on her clothing while Leon Bobb - her husband - reportedly chased behind her with a cutlass in his hand, telling her to come back into the house.

The woman raised an alarm, shouting, “Leon chopped Seon.” The woman who managed to escape was rushed to the GPHC by her daughter.

She was admitted as a patient suffering from a wound to her left side neck, right hand and burn marks about her body.

When Police arrived on the scene, the couple’s son, Seon Bobb, was found lying motionless on a mattress.

A large wound was seen on the left side neck while his father was found lying on a blood-soaked bed in a room, with a large wound to his abdomen with his intestine protruding.

A blood-stained knife and cutlass were found under the bed Leon was on. Seon was pronounced dead at the scene, while his father died while being transported to the GPHC.
