The Jamaica Constabulary Force says one of Westmoreland’s most wanted men who was arrested in the Cayman Islands on Friday is to be extradited to Jamaica to face charges.

Twenty-nine-year-old Obrian Ellis of Farm Pen district in Westmoreland was charged in the Cayman Islands with illegal landing and possession of ganja with intent to supply.

He was arrested during a police narcotics operation.

Ellis is wanted in Jamaica for arson and the murder of 44-year-old chef, Steadman Sterling, of Farm Pen district committed in December 2016.

Sterling and Ellis were reportedly involved in a dispute when it is alleged that Ellis used a firearm to shot Sterling several times.

Ellis later fled the country.
