Linstead man charged for murder in Trelawny

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) said 21-year-old labourer Anthony Barrette, otherwise called ‘Tony Stella’, has been charged with Murder, Wounding With Intent, as well as Illegal Possession of Firearm and Ammunition.

He is from Linstead in St. Catherine.

The JCF said the charges resulted from the October 6 shooting death of 20-year-old land surveyor Rean Garfield Newell, otherwise called Little Man, from Old Harbour Road in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.

Another man, also from Old Harbour Road, was wounded in the incident that happened on the Retreat Drive main road in Trelawny.

The JCF said: “Reports from the Falmouth Police Division are that, about 4:30AM, both men were walking along the roadway when they were pounced upon by armed men travelling in a motor car who opened gunfire hitting them.

“The police were alerted and they were taken to hospital where Newell died while being treated and the other man admitted for treatment,” added the JCF.
