A 16-year-old female is currently in police custody being questioned in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 26-year-old Gros Islet man on Thursday morning around 9 a.m.
The deceased has been identified as Marjele Williams, also known as Marley and Moon Head.
A post-mortem examination conducted later Thursday revealed that Williams died from a stab wound to the heart.
It is alleged that Williams and the 16-year-old female had a prior altercation before he was attacked and stabbed in the chest area. The incident occurred on Marina Street in Gros Islet.
“The suspect walked up to him and stabbed him with a knife which the suspect twisted,” a law enforcement source told St. Lucia News Online.
“Apparently the suspect and the guy had issues before,” the source added.
The teen is currently assisting police with their investigations. And reports are that the suspect is ‘well-known’ to the deceased.
