Horace Fisher, Gleaner Writer
The Clarendon police say one man has been taken into custody for the killing of a Chinese businessman in the parish last week.
Head of operations for the Clarendon police, Superintendent Carol McKenzie, says the suspect will be charged with Peng’s death after he is questioned in the presence of his attorney on Tuesday.
Twenty-six-year-old Jun Peng, who operated grocery stores in Lionel Town and May Pen, was found along the Dawkins Pen main road in Vere, Clarendon, with his throat slashed after he was reportedly abducted and robbed.
Superintendent McKenzie says a motorcar linked to the crime has also been seized and that material evidence taken from it has been sent for forensic analysis.
