The accused is 32-year-old Rameish Reid of Sunrise Crescent, Kingston 19. Reports are that about 5:30 p.m., residents stumbled upon the bodies and alerted the police. On their arrival, the bodies were seen with gunshot wounds inside a Toyota Corolla motor car that was parked along the roadway. The deceased were subsequently identified as 30-year-old Michael Fisher, a farmer of Cambridge district, St James, and 30-year-old Ricky Frame, a mason of Nompriel district, Negril, Westmoreland. Reid was subsequently arrested on May 4. He was charged following an interview in the presence of his attorney. His court date is being finalised.
Meanwhile, detectives assigned to the Major Investigations Division have charged 29-year-old Jerome Pryce of Grandison Path, Kingston 11, for several offences in connection with an incident on Central Road in the parish on July 17, 2020. He is charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, robbery with aggravation, illegal possession of firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.

The deceased, who was subsequently identified as 46-year-old Leroy Jones, otherwise called 'Tony', a security officer of Central Road, Kingston 10, died on the spot. Jones was also robbed of his licensed Glock pistol and an undetermined sum of cash in the incident. Pryce was later held by the police during an operation at his home.
