Judge Manning’s wife dies  in early-Sunday burglary

POINTE BLANCHE--An early morning robbery at the residence of retired Judge of Instruction Wilfred Manning in Pointe Blanche has led to the death of his wife Lelia.

Police spokesperson Joe Josepha confirmed that two persons had entered the elderly couple’s home around 5:00am Sunday, May 29.
Lelia Manning woke up and heard the burglars entering the house on Thrush Road in Pointe Blanche. The shock and panic caused by the home invasion led to a massive heart attack, which caused her death.
Her husband tried to come to his wife’s rescue and was reportedly attacked by the two men. After they left, Manning made his way to his wife. He checked her pulse and attempted to resuscitate her, but his efforts proved in vain.
Police spokesman Josepha said early Sunday afternoon that he was unable to provide details about the incident, as police detectives and members of the Forensic Department are still busy investigating.
Judge Manning and family are very grateful for the support they have received but kindly request that they are left to grieve privately. The family is traumatised by the immeasurable loss they suffered and need time to process before they are ready to receive visitors.
If anybody has any information relevant to this incident, please contact the police department. Anyone with information about this tragic incident is requested to contact detectives via + 1-721-542-2222, ext.107 or 176, the anonymous tip line 9300, or send a private message via Facebook page Police Force of Sint Maarten - Korps Politie Sint Maarten or website
