A 47 year old man who was reported to have fondled a 15 year old male student was stabbed to death by the teenager yesterday.

Dead is Everton Romonie, a restaurant assistant of Leeds District and Black River in St. Elizabeth.

The student who is also from Black River is in police custody.

It is reported that the Black River police received information around 4.45 p.m. yesterday, that a body was seen in a brown tarpaulin at 11 School Street in the town.

The body was later identified to be that of Romonie.

The police were told that Romonie and the youth had been at the same address, when he allegedly began fondling the teen, and an ice pick was used to stab him several times.
