Carpenter owns up to murder


Share post:

Cheriss Ricardo Omar Ince threw in the towel and pleaded guilty to the non-capital murder of 75-year-old Marcelle Claudia Smith yesterday.

Smith, the wife of Aurelius Smith, former headmaster of The Lodge School, had mysteriously disappeared around October 12, 2015.

Six days later, her husband’s silver-grey Toyota Yaris, which she had been driving previously, was found abandoned in the vicinity of Chelston Park, St Michael. Her decomposing body was discovered in a ravine six days later.

Ince, a carpenter, then 36 years old, of Nursery No. 2, Four Roads, St Philip, had led investigators to Smith’s body in the ravine at Halton, St Philip, after he was arrested and charged on suspicion of her murder.  (RA)
