Guyana man sought in machete slaying of 2 children
GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Authorities in Guyana say they are pursuing a man suspected of killing his two young children with a machete and critically wounding their mother.
Police say 26-year-old sugar cane worker Richard Lord attacked his family in the town of Zeelugt after arguing with the child’s mother, his common law wife.
A police statement says the children were 5 and 2. The children’s 21-year-mother was stabbed several times in the attack late Wednesday and was listed in critical but stable condition. Police said they were actively searching for the suspect Thursday.
