Man charged with 2015 Arouca murder

A 32-year-old man, who was charged just last year with the offence of being a gang leader, was expected to return to court on Monday morning, charged with the murder of Isaiah Jakie in 2015.

The suspect was charged on Friday and was expected before the courts on Monday.

Jakie was killed on the morning of April 13, 2015. The 25-year-old man was severely beaten about his body, dragged along Jitman Drive, Arouca, before being taken into a forested area, stripped of all his clothing, and shot several times before his body was thrown onto the banks of a shallow river.

More on this as it becomes available.
