The minister of gender affairs is outraged at the killing of a woman in Heywood, St Mary and appealed to citizens to break their silence in a bid to put an end to the brutal attacks against women and girls.

In a release this afternoon, Olivia Grange said: "These acts of brutality against our women and girls must stop. They are unacceptable and we must do all we can to ensure that the perpetrators are caught and punished under the law..."

"The killing of Mrs Erroline Chin is the latest in a series of brutal acts of violence against women and girls in our country," she said further.

Chin's body was found in bushes by residents yesterday after she was reported missing for three days.

Grange urged that there should be no more cover up.
