Pregnant Mother and Two Children Chopped to Death by Common-law Husband in Old Green Island

Jamaica Crime News, Hanover: A 61-year-old fisherman of a Green Island address, is now in police custody at the Lucea Headquarters lock up in Hanover, after he reportedly chopped his two children to death and his pregnant common-law wife on Wednesday morning, April 24.

Dead are, Adanique Cunningham, 38-year-old unemployed of Dixon Wharf and her two children  7-year-old Jayanna Cooke and 4-year-old Shanique Cooke.

The dead woman is also said to have been 7-months pregnant.

Reports are that shortly after 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, an argument developed between the accused man and his common- law wife, allegedly that the child she is now carrying was not his own.

We learnt that the present baby father also resides in the area, but was not there at the time of the incident.

The accused then armed himself with a machete and used it to chop his common-law wife and his two children to death.

He was later cornered by angry residents who turned him over to the police.

In the meanwhile, mother of the slain woman told our news team that, her slain daughter was presently living at her home and not at the accused man’s house.

She added that her daughter left the house about 6:30 a.m. and told her that she was going to the home of her baby father which is close by to get her children ready  for school.

She further stated that when she did not return she got curious, but only to learn from residents in the area that the accused has chopped her to death along with her two children.

A total of 18 persons have been murdered in the parish of Hanover since the start of the year.
