It is understood that the headless body of the woman was found on the verandah by members of her family, who went to pay her a visit sometime after 5 am. The woman’s head was found inside a section of the house.
According to a RJR News report, the elderly woman was in the island to conduct preparations for the funeral of her son who died in a recent motor vehicle accident.
The accused man who is said to be her grandson 18-year-old Kevin Turner was found some metres away from the house by a resident, with his clothes bloodied and when questioned on the reason his clothes were in that condition, he reportedly stated that he had killed some fowls.
The 18-year-old man is said to have returned to the house and sat among his relatives, who then summoned the Police to the scene.
Kevin Turner was then taken into custody.
