Ex-spouse chopped up former lover in Buena Vista

There was an attempted murder in Buena Vista Village, Cayo that happened on Thursday evening after five. The village is also where a farmer, Armando Medrano, was murdered on the same day.  A twenty-year-old woman, mother of two Consuelo Queme was shelling corn under home when her ex-spouse approached her and proceeded to chop her. The woman sustained several chop wounds and was hospitalized over the weekend. We spoke with her mother on Friday who told us that she thought her daughter was going to be killed had it not been for another man who intervened.

“The man reached and then he was saying all these crazy things. I didn’t pay him any mind and I didn’t understand what was going on. He had always been fighting with her. He wants her to go back to live with him but she doesn’t want because he always treats her badly and always fighting with her – beating her up and not taking care of his home . So that is why she doesn’t want to go live with him. So he came and he chopped her up. If my son-in-law didn’t get in to intervene, I think right there he would have killed her because he was angry and he left,. So he jumped on top of him to stop the machete and this baby she had in her arms. And he chopped this way and she turned her body with the baby away. He chopped her in the head – like the side of her face and also chopped her knee and also the other leg. She is in the hospital. They don’t know if she will be able to walk or she will become crippled because it appears that he cut her tendon. The one from her face wasn’t too bad, thank God. But I was frightened because it happened in front of me and all the kids. They would fight before but never this seriously. He had never pulled a weapon like this and in front of me he chopped her up. She has two kids. She would always get pregnant but she has different miscarriages because he always beats her and she loses the baby all the time. So right now she is in a bad situation with this chopping and we don’t know what her condition will be like after she gets better.”
