Jamaican in court for murder in Trinidad

A Jamaican national is expected to appear before an Arima Magistrate on Thursday charged with the murder of Dominic Houllier Almerales.

The 29-year-old man was held last Friday during a police operation and questioned by officials of the Homicide Bureau.

On Wednesday, officials went to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions who, after perusing the case, gave instructions to charge the suspect with murder and with one count of shooting with intent.

The second charge stems from an injury sustained by Almerales’ wife, Desiree Sparkle Layne, in the same attack.

Police are also searching for two other suspects in this incident, including a second Jamaican national and a Venezuelan man.

Almerales, 37, was shot and killed on May 9, when he went to his Temple Street, Arima, property to speak to his tenants on outstanding rent.
