St Mary man charged for murder of returning resident remanded

The man who was arrested and charged in connection with the murder of British national Karen Cleary-Brown was remanded when he appeared before the St Mary Parish Court on Friday, December 13.

He is 32-year-old Sheldon Hewitt of Boscobel, St Mary.

Hewitt was arrested following inconsistencies detected in the ‘missing person’s report’ that he filed at the Oracabessa Police Station in relation to the deceased.

“These inconsistencies led the officers to widen their investigation which resulted in the search of Cleary-Brown’s home in Boscobel. During that search, her decomposing body was found in a shallow grave about 5:30pm on Monday, December 3,” said the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

Hewitt is to return to the St Mary Parish Court on Thursday, January 10, 2019.
