The police has arrested and charged a St Andrew man in relation to the mob-killing of a man who residents claim was involved in the murdering of an eight-year-old girl in the rural community of Sterling Castle Heights, Red Hills.
It’s confirmed that a 30-year-old landscaper Andrew Breakcliffe, otherwise called ‘Grinch’, also a resident of Sterling Castle Heights, was charged for murder and arson.
The charges come eight months after Miguel Williams, 29, of unsound mind, was attacked, beaten and set on fire by angry residents along the roadway on April 17 who accused him of being involved in the slaying of Shantae Skyers, a student of Red Hills Primary School.
He was pronounced dead at hospital.
Skyers went missing for five days before her decomposing body was found in a section of the community known as Blue Hole.
Both killings sparked national outrage.
The police are still searching for her killer.
