Caretaker Charged for the Murder of Jamaican-British Woman in St Mary
The St Mary police have charged a man in relation to the recent stabbing death of a Jamaican-British woman in Boscobel in the parish.
The accused, 32-year-old Sheldon Hewitt, alias Troy, of Boscobel, was slapped with murder charges last Friday.
He is to appear before the St Mary Parish Court on Thursday, December 13.
The body of 44-year-old Karen Cleary-Brown, a beautician of Paradise Edge in Boscobel and a Pentonville Road address in London, England, was found in a shallow grave on Monday, December 3.
The body had been wrapped in a tarpaulin and was placed in a hole, which had been covered with a layer of concrete and dirt.
A post-mortem conducted on the British woman’s body on Monday revealed that she had been stabbed several times, before her body was buried on her Boscobel property.
Cleary-Brown, who was born in Jamaica, but had lived in England for 20 years, was building her dream home in Boscobel. She had returned to the island recently.
It had been reported that Cleary-Brown was last seen alive at about 9:00 pm Sunday, November 25. However, according to the police, she was reported missing on November 27, 2018, by the suspect, who was both a mason and the caretaker at her premises.
