17-year-old indicted on Murder Charges

A 17-year-old boy is now facing murder charges for the death of a 35-year-old woman whose lifeless body was found inside her home.

After several months of dead-end leads, Guadeloupe police finally made headway after DNA evidence pointed them in the direction of a 17-year-old boy.

Neighbourhood rumours had originally placed the blame on the victim’s husband, however, the island’s public prosecutor, Patrick Desjardins, affirmed that a motive for the gruesome murder was not yet known while confirming that the suspect was the deceased’s neighbour.
