An 18-year-old man was charged with the murder of his relative in the community of Annotto Bay, in St Mary, on Sunday (July 5).
Lamar Hunter also called ‘Toby’, is said to have been involved in a dispute with his relative, the deceased, 44-year-old Omar Morlock.
Reports are that Hunter was at home when a dispute developed between him and Morlock, in which Morlock accused him of stealing $2,000 JMD.
Hunter left the house and was walking along the roadway when Morlock followed him.
Hunter then used a knife to stab Morlock in the chest. He was assisted to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Hunter was subsequently arrested and the knife taken from him. He was charged with murder on Wednesday (July 8).
