Sean Coffie, the man accused of killing his wife in Portmore, St Catherine in October, was remanded when he appeared in court yesterday.

Coffie, a schoolteacher, is charged with the murder of his wife Sasha-Gaye, who was pregnant at the time.

Another man, identified as Shevania Allen, who was also implicated in the case was also remanded.

The court was told that Coffie, through the help of Allen, contracted a man to kill his wife for $150,000.

It was revealed in court that up to the time of the killing only $10,000 was paid over to the contract killer, who is now acting as a key witness in the case.

It was also disclosed that after shooting the pregnant woman on October 21, her attacker ran onto the nearby Cumberland High School where he changed his clothes and left the bag and the gun used in the attack.

Meanwhile, in applying for bail Coffie’s lawyer K. Churchill Neita said there is no point to prove the offence against his client.
