A District Constable attached to the Nain police station in St Elizabeth has been suspended in the aftermath of a complaint by the grandmother of an 18-year-old woman who was reportedly killed by her child's father that the police did not respond to a request for assistance.

A release from the Contabulary Communication Network (CCN) yesterday said the District Constable was suspended following an investigation by the Inspectorate of the Constabulary into the handling of the Kimberly Simpson murder case.

She was reportedly set upon and stabbed to death by her former lover in Nain, St. Elizabeth on November 29.

Simpsonís grandmother, Almeda Powell, had told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that she called the Nain police four times but they did not respond. She further claimed that she made similar calls to the Alligator Pond police but did not get a response either.

The distraught woman later called for Police Commissioner Owen Ellington to take immediate action.

The police say the investigative team from the Inspectorate of the Constabulary continues to probe the matter.
