A 31-year-old man from Mt Hope is being questioned by homicide officers following Monday’s brutal killing of 27-year-old mother of one, Tehilla St Clair.

St Clair was chopped repeatedly on Monday night at her Beach Road, Palo Seco home in front of her five-year-old son, who also suffered a minor chop wound in the incident.

The attack reportedly took place at about 11.30 pm on Monday.

The suspect was held a short while later while attempting to flee the scene and was held in an abandoned building a short distance away from the house where the attack happened.

St Clair succumbed to her injuries while in the kitchen of her home.

An autopsy performed at the Forensic Science Center in St James by pathologist Dr Hughvon Des Vignes found St Clair died from multiple chop wounds to her head, neck, chest, arms, and legs.

The suspect, LoopTT was told, is well known to the police, as he was released from prison within the last seven months.

He is currently being questioned by homicide investigators.

More on this as it becomes available.
