Jamaica Crime News, St Ann: A woman who was arrested by the St Ann police earlier this year after being accused of robbing her ex-lover, was chopped to death by the same man on Tuesday night, August 28.
Her 12-year-old son was also chopped and killed, while a male friend was chopped and injured by the alleged ex-lover whose name has been given only as “Bull” and who is presently still on the run.
The woman has been identified as Alesha Francis, otherwise called “Alicia” 32-year-old unemployed and her son Teco Jackson, both of Linton Park, Watt Town in St Ann.
Reports by the Watt Town Police are that about 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Francis was accompanied by Teco, her 6-year-old, daughter and a male friend to a nearby shop.
While returning from the shop she was attacked by the alleged ex-lover known as “Bull”, who was armed with a machete.
“Bull” reportedly inflicted multiple chop wounds to bodies of Francis and her son. The male friend intervened and he too was chopped and his hand partially severed. The 6-year-old daughter managed to escape.
The wounded man ran and was chased by the raging attacker, but managed to elude him. The police were summoned and upon arrival, Francis and her son were both transported to hospital, where they were both pronounced dead.
Residents in the area told our news team that Francis and the man known as “Bull ” was involved in a relationship some time ago.
It is further reported that earlier this year, he accused Francis of stealing money from him and she was arrested by the police. She was later released and “Bull” had vowed to kill her since then.
The Watt Town Police say they are presently still in search of the man known as “Bull”, who ran into bushes and has not been seen or heard from since.
