Cheriss Ricardo Omar Ince, the man charged with theft of the vehicle belonging to former Lodge School Principal Aurelius Smith, has been charged with the murder of Smith’s wife, Marcelle Smith.
75-year-old Marcelle Smith went missing three weeks ago, and her car was later found abandoned on Culloden Road.
An autopsy conducted earlier this week positively identified a body found in a ravine over a week ago at Halton Plantation, St Philip, as that of Smith.
Ince was remanded to prison last Friday after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on theft charges.
He was slapped with the murder charge when he reappeared at St Matthias court this morning and was remanded back to Dodds.
