A 26-year-old woman, who was taken into custody following the killing of siblings Kelton James and Kenwyn James, has been released.  

Loop News was told that the woman was released pending further inquiries. However, police reserve the right to re-arrest the woman in the future should further evidence be unearthed against her in the course of inquiries. 

Theron Levi Agard has been charged with the murders of the two brothers. He has also been charged with the offences of possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition, possession of a firearm with the intent to endanger lives, and possession of ammunition with the intent to endanger lives. 

Cpl Guy is the charging officer in this matter. 

Agard and the 26-year-old woman were held during a police operation led by the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) in La Horquetta. The officers made their way to Petra Crescent at about 2 pm on June 7, where the two were detained. 

Police said that the couple had been identified as being part of a group who was present at the scene of the homicides on June 5, and police followed their departure from Tobago the following day and arrested them. 

Kelton James, 39, and Kenwyn James, 32, were killed on June 5 along Franklyn Road, Les Coteaux, Tobago. They were gunned down following a confrontation with a group of men along the roadway. The killings were described as ‘deliberate’ by police, and they have intelligence that it may have stemmed from an initial confrontation the brothers had two weeks prior to the shooting.
