Suspect in Tobago murder dies at hospital; poisoning suspected

The 25-year-old man, who was the main suspect in the brutal killing school teacher K'la Marie Solomon-Cain in Tobago on February 2, has died.

The deceased has been identified as Jason Cain, and he was originally from Maloney.

An autopsy has been ordered to confirm the cause of death, as police believe he may have died as a result of complications associated with ingesting a poisonous substance.

It was said that when Jason Cain was held in Arnos Vale, six days after the killing in Bacolet, he appeared to have been weak and dehydrated, and his condition had not progressed since.

He died at about 11:30 pm on Wednesday night.

On February 2, Solomon-Cain, 24, was beaten to death with a hammer in front of the Dorothy Moses Nursery School at Nursery School Street, where she worked.

Police confirmed that Solomon-Cain had previously lodged a police report regarding a domestic situation.

More on this as it becomes available.
