Guam - A 43-year-old Sinajana woman died yesterday after her boyfriend hit her with an object yesterday afternoon. According to Guam Police Department Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia, GPD's Agat Precinct responded to an assault in the village just after 1pm. A male and female were transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital.

The male reportedly sustained self-inflicted lacerations to the neck and was treated and released. His girlfriend underwent surgery for serious injuries she sustained and was placed in Intensive Care Unit. She later passed away.

Balajadia says the victim's boyfriend, 39-year-old Roland San Nicolas Smith from Agat, was charged with aggravated murder, aggravated assault, family violence and possession of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony. He was booked and confined.

Coincidentally, October has been designated as Family Violence Awareness Month.
