A young lady is dead and her sister in custody during a regrettable family dispute that occurred in South Trelawny.
The deceased is 19-year old Kimberly Crawford of Stettin, near Albert Town, Trelawny.
Reports are that at about 9 o’clock this morning, both siblings were at home when a heated dispute developed between them. This was as a result of the elder 23-year old Osheen Crawford reprimanding her younger 19-year old sister Kimberley Crawford about staying out late at nights.
It is alleged that Kimberley smashed a glass and used a piece to attack Osheen. A knife was then used to stab Kimberley Crawford in the neck.
She was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead.
The elder sister fled the scene of the incident, but later contacted a pastor who brought her into the Ulster Spring Police.
Three persons have now been murdered in Trelawny since the start of the year. All 3 murders took place between the days of Saturday and Sunday.
