Antigua: “A woman is one of two people accused of murder”

The two people charged with the murder of Kemmoy Jeffers have been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison.

Clarence Ira Thomas, 63, and Raeleen Whynn, 29,  both of Upper Fort Road, were jointly charged on Monday with murder. They went before the court on Tuesday and the court ordered them remanded to prison until June 28, their date for committal. This means they duo is expected to know, on that date, whether the prosecution has come up with sufficient evidence to convince the magistrate to send the case to the High Court for trial.

Immediately following the incident, they were both arrested and taken into custody.

In a release issued on Tuesday, lawmen said they are still searching for Earlsfield James, also of Upper Fort Road in connection with the same killing.

According to police, the body of the 31-year-old Fort Road victim, Jeffers, was discovered around 11 p.m. last Friday on the ground near a house on Fort Road.
