A woman and her two young children died last evening after the house in which they lived at Bartica was set on fire by her jealous husband.
The woman, Caroline Kennedy, and her two young daughters, 5-year-old Mariana and 3-year-old Gabriella remains were discovered in the aches of their wooden home shortly after 23:00hrs.
According to residents at Four Miles Squatting Area, Bartica, they noticed the house on fire and within minutes it was destroyed.
The burnt remains of Kennedy and her two young daughters were spotted in the rubble. It is suspected that the woman and her daughters might have been asleep and later trapped in the burning wooden shack.
Shortly after the incident, the husband, who reportedly set the fire after accusing his wife of talking to another man, was arrested by police. An investigation into the incident is underway.
