Detectives in St Elizabeth have charged a St Andrew woman with murder in relation to an incident in Cameron Hill district in the parish on Friday, September 25.

Charged is 22-year-old Kadeen Williams, otherwise called ‘Fambo’, of Balcombe Drive, Kingston 11.

The police report that about 12:30 p.m., residents became suspicious after Williams was seen running from a house in the community, reportedly after she and the now-deceased had an argument.

He had been chopped several times.

Residents alerted the police and Wright was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Williams was arrested the same day and later charged following an interview.

Her court date is being finalised.
