The 12-year wait, for justice in the case of a woman who was allegedly beheaded by her estranged husband is expected to come to a close this week.

Richard Duhaney is on trial in the St. Catherine Parish Court, for murdering his wife, Vilma Duhaney in 2007.

Duhaney reportedly beheaded his wife in Sligovile, St. Catherine on March 20, 2007.

Mrs. Duhaney was a school teacher.

Her body was discovered in bushes in Waugh Hill, Sligoville, St Catherine.

It’s believed the Duhaneys were having a domestic dispute when the murder and beheading occurred.

Richard Duhaney’s trial got underway before Justice Sharon George on December 2 after 12 years of waiting.

Duhaney is represented by Queen’s Council, Valerie Neita Robertson.

Both the Crown and defense attorneys closed their cases yesterday.

Justice George is expected to start her summation tomorrow, before sending the jury to deliberate.

Investigation led the St. Catherine North Police to Mr. Duhaney being charged with Mrs. Duhaney’s murder.
