tzibOn April 6th 2015, twenty four year old Coast Guard Seaman Keyren Tzib made headlines when she shot to the head senior Coast Guard Officer, Kurt Hyde, as they returned to  base on board a vessel he was captaining. On Tuesday April 7th 2015, following an investigation by Police, Tzib was charged for attempted murder, dangerous harm and the use of deadly means of harm, she was then remanded to Hattieville prison and 8 days after she was granted bail of $10,000 which she met and was allowed to go home.


That was a few month ago and tonight Tzib is back on remand this time for murder. Tzib is accused of stabbing her common-law-husband to death on Saturday afternoon in Lord’s Bank Village during a domestic dispute. According to the reports, at around 2:00 p.m. Tzib and her common-law-husband Travis Blancaneaux were embroiled in a domestic dispute which ended deadly.


According to Inspector Frederick Gordon, Officer Commanding the Ladyville Police Station, the stabbing happened in the yard and investigations have so far revealed that Blancaneaux attacked Tzib with a stick. He hit her several times and continued doing so even after she begged him to stop.


And when the beating did not stop Tzib drew for a knife and stabbed Blancaneaux to the shoulder and the abdomen. Blancaneaux was dead by the time police arrived on the scene. Tzib was then taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital to be treated for her injuries but when asked for a statement she refused to give one. She was then arrested for the incident.


Of note is that Tzib has a history of unstable behavior. The incident with Hyde allegedly was not the first time she drew a weapon on a fellow officer. Reports are that she tried to stab two different members of the coast guard and also stabbed one of them off base. In the past Tzib went twice before a medical board for mental illness and it was determined that she is mentally and physically fit for work, once she is not under stressful situations.
