The village of Mamoral No 1 in central Trinidad awoke to the shocking news of the death of a man and his daughter.

Police responded at the scene after being called by a neighbour who made the discovery.

Initial reports indicate that a man and a six year old girl were found dead in a house at Lekam Road, Chaguanas.

Solomon Joseph, 36, was found at the base of a bed, with one foot on the mattress, while his daughter Solisha lay in the bed.

Solisha was thought to be asleep by the first responder until her stab wounds were discovered.

The mother, Kernisha Solomon who worked the 7p.m. to 3a.m. shift at a casino, attempted to call her husband, because he was late in picking her up from work.

When he did not answer, she contacted  a neighbour who when went to check on the family.

The neighbour found Solomon Joseph dead around 4a.m, and thought his daughter was still asleep. She however, had been stabbed multiple times in the abdomen.

An autopsy has been scheduled.

The motive for the murders, and whether more than one killer was involved, is unknown.
