Suspect in custody for murder of Gasparillo woman

A 60-year-old man is in custody following the brutal murder of a 27-year-old woman Wednesday afternoon near her Gasparillo home.

The deceased has been identified as Kavita Jokhan, of Cocopiece Road, Bonne Aventure, Gasparillo.

Her injuries were so extensive that part of her face had been caved in.

The incident reportedly took place around 3 pm on Wednesday.

Neighbours saw Jokhan lying on her back in a pool of blood.

The area was cordoned off and crime scene investigators visited the scene.

An autopsy is expected to be performed on Thursday at the Forensic Science Center in St James.
