  Jamaica has been rocked by yet another murder-suicide. The latest incident involves a man from St. James who hacked his common-law wife,  and her step daughter to death, in the Rosemount community  Sunday morning,  September 23rd and committed suicide  

The dead woman has been identified as Dionne Smith, 45-year-old, a service station supervisor, of Rosemount,  and her 16-year-old,  daughter Jayshenel Gordon,  who attended the Herbert Morrison High School.

 The accused man,  Fabian Lyewsang,  fled the scene immediately after committing the gruesome act, and later committed suicide by driving the victim’s Nissan Tiida motor car into the Rio Cobre River. Reports by the police are that about 2:15 am, on Sunday,  September 23rd, Lyewsang, and his common-law wife got involved in an argument at the family house in Rosemount.


It is further reported that the accused used a knife to stab his common-law wife multiple times to her upper body, he then slit her throat.

He then went upstairs, and slit Jayshenele throat while in her sleep. The accused took his 13-year-old son from the house, and drove away with him in her vehicle. Lyewsang drove from the community to St Catherine, and after concealing the small boy, he then drove the vehicle into the Rio Cobre River, killing himself. 

The St James police are now asking members of the public for assistance in locating the 13-year-old child.
