Peter Thomas, 43, of Union, Castries, was charged for theft under Section 188 of the criminal code.

He was remanded until his next court appearance on Feb. 8.

Thomas was picked up by police on Friday at his residence and charged yesterday afternoon, police sources say.

According to police sources, enough evidence was gathered to prove that Thomas was in possession of Raymond’s car on the day her body was discovered.

He reportedly drove Raymond’s vehicle to a gas station to fix a punctured tire. He ended up abandoning the vehicle on the Castries Waterfront, near the government buildings.

Raymond’s body was discovered by police at her Marisule, Gros Islet residence on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016 after they responded to a suspected burglary report from her family.

Reports are that family members became suspicious after phone calls went unanswered and her gate was discovered locked.

Police said she died as a result of “asphyxia secondary to ligature strangulation”.

Raymond, who lived alone, was also sexually assaulted.

Investigators are awaiting forensic evidence that they hope will tie him directly to the killing and land him with a murder charge.

  1. Why aren't accused individuals in police custody in handcuffs? If more than one prisoner is being transported they should all be handcuffed and chained at their feet to help avoid escape. In many pictures I see the officers 1 feet or 2 behind the accused, is that the standard procedure?
