Woman charged for murder of elderly couple in St Thomas freed


Entornointeligente.com / The St Thomas woman who was jointly charged with her boyfriend for killing an elderly Jamaican-Canadian couple in the parish in 2018 was this morning freed of murder.

A formal plea of not guilty was handed down in the Home Circuit Court after the prosecution offered no evidence against Nekia Thompson.

The prosecution told Justice Lorna Shelly Williams that the Crown was unable to mount a viable case in the matter.

Among the reasons listed were that the fingerprint analyst did not place her at the murder scene, inconclusive DNA result and that the Crown could not use the statement of her co-accused against her.

The father of Thompson’s four-year-old daughter, Fabian Skervin who was yesterday convicted for the couple’s murder, had reportedly made a jailhouse confession in which he had alleged that he had killed the senior citizens with the help of his girlfriend and a wanted man.
