Hanover Man Charged with Three Counts of Murder after Killing Two daughters and their Pregnant Mother

Jamaica Crime News, Hanover: The Hanover police have reported that 61-year-old, Paul Coote, the fisherman and car washer of a Cove Road address in Green Island, who reportedly chopped his two children to death and his pregnant common-law wife on Wednesday morning, April 25, was officially charged with murder on Sunday afternoon, April 29.

The investigators further stated that Coote has been charged with three counts of murder.  He has been charged with the murders of his common-law wife   Adanique Cunningham, 38-year-old unemployed of Dixon Wharf and her two children 7-year-old Jayanna Cooke and 4- year-old   Shanique Coote, otherwise called “Keisha”.

Despite the fact that the dead female was 8 months pregnant up to the time of her being killed, the police have pointed out that the law in Jamaica does not allow an individual to be charged for an unborn baby.

It is reported that shortly after 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, the female who was presently living with her mother in the same community, went to the home of her elderly baby-father to get her two daughters ready for school.

It is further reported that an argument developed between Coote and the woman over her being eight months pregnant for another man in the community.

Coote who was chopping his yard at the time of the argument chased his common-law wife and use the machete to chop her severely to death.  He then turned on his own two children who were crying and also chop them to death.

The 61-year-old man was later cornered by angry residents who discovered what was taking place. He was later turned over to the police who were called to the scene.

Our news team also learnt that since the accused has been taken into custody, he had to be taken to the Noel Holmes hospital for treatment and he has also been making constant reports of being ill.

We also learnt that despite proper representation he was slapped with three counts of murder and is booked to appear in the Green Island Resident Magistrate Court on Wednesday, May 9.
