Jamaica: Police searching for boyfriend in fatal Spanish Town domestic dispute

The police say a search is ongoing for the boyfriend of 37-year old Tamika Richards in connection with yesterday’s fatal domestic dispute in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

An appeal has been made for 27-year-old Rhiyeme Woodhouse, otherwise called ‘Pops’, of Mother Smith Lane, Spanish Town in the parish, to turn himself in to the Spanish Town Police by 6:00 p.m. today.

He has been listed as a person of interest by the police in the investigation.

According to neighbours, Richards, who died after she was stabbed multiple times in the upper body, had indicated to her partner of three years that she was no longer interested in the relationship.

Concerned friends visited her home, which she shared with her two sons, on Sunday about 6:30 a.m. after failing to get in contact with her.

They reported that they forced open her bedroom door to find her lying on her bed in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds.

She was taken to the Spanish Town Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
