Suspect held in connection with murder of Diego Martin man

One man is currently in custody being questioned with the murder of a Diego Martin man.

The suspect was held over the weekend, less than one week after the bullet-riddled body of Jason Charles was found along Cox Lane, Laventille last Monday.

According to police reports, around  5.30 pm that day, residents of the area heard several loud explosions at Cox Lane, Pashley Street, Laventille.

Police were notified and officers from the Besson Street Police Station responded.

They found the bullet-riddled body of a man lying on his back on the northwestern side of an abandoned house.

The body was viewed by a district medical officer, Dr Bagan, who made certain pronouncements before ordering its removal to the Forensic Science Center in St James.

More on this as it becomes available.
