UPDATE: Dancehall artiste Quada charged with murder, arson



Detectives at the Constant Spring Police Station in St Andrew have arrested and charged 23-year-old Shauguelle Clarke, otherwise called ‘Quada’, a recording artiste of Buff Bay, Portland with murder and arson.

He was charged following a question and answer session with detectives. The court date for Clarke has not yet been finalised so it is unclear when he will be granted bail.

Clarke was charged for the murder of 30-year-old Miguel Williams in Sterling Castle Heights, St Andrew on April 17, 2019.

Reports are that about at 3.45 pm, Williams was allegedly beaten, set ablaze and his house torched by Clarke and others. 

Clarke joins fellow accused 30-year-old Andrew Breakcliffe, otherwise called ‘Grinch’, of a Sterling Castle Heights address who was also charged with murder and arson in December 2019.

Williams was killed in the aftermath of the tragic killing of Red Hills Primary school student Shantae Skyers who went missing for five days before her decomposing body was found in a section of the community known as Blue Hole.

Her death ignited public outrage and angry citizens killed Williams, an innocent mentally-challenged man in retaliation, a terrible act that also provoked national outrage.  

The police are still searching for Skyers' killer.

Investigations are ongoing.
