Person of interest in Trelawny double murder held

The Trelawny police have taken into custody a man who was named as a person of interest into Friday morning's gruesome killing of a male and female in the southern part of the parish.

The deceased have been identified as 50-year-old Sophia Bryan, otherwise called Carol and 28-years-old Junior Bailey, also called Bad Walk, both of Freeman's  Hall, Ulster Spring, Trelawny addresses.

Reports are that about 4:00 am on Friday, the police were called after the bodies of Bryan and Bailey were found in a house in their community with multiple stab wounds.

The police subsequently named Garfield Edwards, who is otherwise called Milo, as a person of interest in the double murder.

Bryan reportedly recently severed a relationship with Edwards, who is also a resident of Freeman's Hall.

Police sources said Edwards was held in a nearby community on Friday night.
