Thirty-two-year-old James Jacobie of Ravine Poission, Bexon, was charged for the murder of 33-year-old Akwaso Francois of Entrepot, Castries and the attempted murder of 27-year-old Eva Louis of Monchy, Gros Islet.
Jacobie, a member of the Saint Lucia Fire and Emergency Services, is expected to make his first court appearance before the First District Court in Castries today. He was charged Friday.
It is alleged that on November 15, Francois and his female companion were driving along the Millennium Highway when they were attacked by the accused and another male suspect.
As a result of the altercation, both Francois and Louis sustained serious injuries and were transported to Victoria Hospital via ambulance. Francois subsequently succumbed to his injuries while Louis was admitted.
