The wife of slain entertainer Jamari Reid has been arrested and charged in connection with his death.

Head of the Trelawny Police Superintendent Clive Blair says 46-year-old Monique Reid was charged on Thursday with soliciting murder.

Blair said the investigation suggests that the entertainer’s death was a contract killing.

Reid is expected to make her first court appearance next week.

Jamari Reid, an emerging artiste, was shot dead last month by two men who entered his Falmouth Gardens home.
