A 20-year-old man was due to appear before a Scarborough Magistrate on Monday, charged with the murder of 15-year-old Abiela Adams.

The suspect, of Plymouth, Tobago, was arrested last week at his home.

He was kept in custody as investigators sought instructions from officials at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Adams’ body was found partially hidden in some rubble at Fidelis Heights, Courland, Tobago on February 12, 2017.

The student of Signal Hill Secondary Comprehensive School had been reported missing three days earlier.

An autopsy revealed that her throat had been slit.

Adams was a member of the Trinidad and Tobago National Football team.

More on this as it becomes available.
