The police say there was an attempted murder-suicide on McIntosh Drive in Kingston 3 Thursday morning.
They say a woman was attacked by her common-law husband.
The woman, who was hit in the head with a stone, is in hospital in serious condition.
The man identified only by his alias, Suddy, took his life.
The incident followed Wednesday’s murder-suicide in which Roulene Clarke Gowans was fatally shot by her estranged husband, Patrick Gowans, on Waltham Park Road in St. Andrew.
The police are renewing the appeal to persons who may be victims of domestic violence or who may have friends or family members suffering from mental health issues, including depression, to seek help.
