The Police Commissioner is commending the investigators in the 2012 murder of 47-year-old taxi operator Delroy Frame.



Yesterday, police constable Jeffrey Peart and his sister, Roxanne Peart, were found guilty of the murder.



The Commissioner says the investigators collectively put together a solid case, which resulted in the conviction of both accused, while displaying the highest level of professionalism and great commitment to the task.



The 24-year-old cop and his sister were arrested after the headless body of the taxi operator was discovered in Wild Cane District, in Cave Valley, St Ann, on May 19, 2012.



Prosecutors led evidence showing that the cop and his sister plotted the murder of the taxi operator after the constable was charged for soliciting and accepting money from the cabbie.



Constable Peart demanded the money from Frame following a collision between his car and that of the taxi operator.



The cop and his sister are to be sentenced on December 12.
