The police have charged a second man with the murder of two missionaries in St Mary.

He is Dwight Henry, 25, otherwise called 'Dougie' and 'Chino', of Wentworth in the parish.

The police, who had named Henry a person of interest in the murders, took him into custody on June 24.

Police subsequently questioned Henry in the presence of his attorney and formally charged him today.

Randy Hentzel, 48, and Harold Nichols, 53, were found dead in the Albion Mountain, northwest St Mary on April 30 and May 1 respectively.

They were reportedly last seen alive when they left Tower Isle, St Mary on motorcycles about 8 a.m. on April 30.
