A St Catherine man has been arrested and charged with the murder and abduction of seven-year-old Kadesha Cousins, whose body was found in the Rio Cobre last month two days after she was reported missing.

He has been identified as Vivian Scott, who according to police investigators is the former fiancée of one of the child’s aunts.

Head of the St Catherine South Police Division Senior Superintendent Noel Christie says Scott is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.

Kadesha was reported missing after she failed to turned up for classes at Waterford Primary School.

Two days later fishermen found her body in the Rio Cobre, near Dyke Road.
